Entrecard Refugees Welcome Here!

Greetings to all of you readers, new and old, and especially "entrecard refugees!"

I have gone ahead and bookmarked some of the blogs I once visited daily via the EC widget. As I hinted in a previous post, I would love it if you "bookmark me back" - and use my blog as a portal to go to other places. I'm actually thinking of bringing back a modest blogroll!

Technology is changing fast these days. I received an invite to join headliner.fm - it is a place where som eof the former entrecarders are trying to reconnect. It is performance-based, but that's ok with me since I am a broadcast jouranlist / blogger / poet / internet personality. By the way, it was my old friend Lance Matthews who coined the term "internet personality!"

Through The Blog Herald I found out that photo-tagging suggestions have been disabled. I had a facebook friend who was continually photo-tagging me: I almost let the bitch have it but found a way to block her from doing so (I don't remember now how I did it, and thankfully she was the only facebooker who bugged me that way!) Another "by the way" - I'm on facebook but I keep a low profile there - same as LinkedIn - tools I use more for career and close friends than general public. Hey, that's what this blog and twitter are for!

I logged into MySpace for the first time in a zillion years - I have some changes to make in the layout and I plan to slowly re-establish my presence there!

I read on radiosurvivor.com where Pandora supports a a new performance royalty bill that would put rate levels for Internet radio on a par with cable and satellite radio. If newspapers actually die out in 10 years, I give terrestial radio 20. 25 max. Well, that's all for now - I have some reading to do, but I will be online for another hour or two.

  1. I wonder how much money people lost... Advertisers who bought ads with $ (there were a few left), bloggers who paid not to display $ ads...

  2. It's taken me a few days to track down the news that Entrecard is kaput. *sigh

    Onwards and upwards, right?

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
