Slideshow ::: Scenes From Fashion’s Night Out in New York City - where the big style dogs romp!

MASHABLE ::: Google is expanding its New York Fashion Week offerings this season. In addition to streaming 30 shows live on YouTube, a 17% increase from last year, the tech giant is also partnering with brands to bring on-the-spot Fashion Week coverage to Google+. Beyond the live Hangouts, Lucky Magazine editors and outside contributors will be uploading images to a live slideshow on its Google+ Page, and Vogue Paris is creating and sharing short, animated GIFs from Fashion’s Night Out on its page. For a complete guide to following New York fashion Week online, click here.

In case you missed it ::: Blogger/Fashionista Tavi Gevinson, editor of online magazine Rookie, and Ira Glass, host of This American Life, having a coffee (and hot chocolate) break over at New York's Highliner Restaurant. (Hover and click on the screencut below)
Has Apple jumped on the technorati/google/facebook "If it ain't broke don't fix it" wagon? Rumours are awash that the iPhone 5 will be released on 12 September... This morning I tweeted "iPhone 5 rumoured to have new dock connector? Yesh, let's get rid of the most popular connector ever."

"You can lead a horse to water..." ::: My experiment sending out an email (which I rarely do) soliciting comments on a blogpost was a real eye-opener. Imagine: I sent email to about 25 individuals who are highly active in the blogosphere. If I can't get them to comment, what makes blogging gurus think some list of email addresses (they call it "e-mail marketing) is the golden goose that will magically lay "comment eggs" on blogger's blogs?

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.

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.
