Slow Down! You can't keep up with everything!

Before you have a nervous breakdown and end up dropping your smartphone in the commode, please know and understand that you can't sign up for, subscribe to and purchase every new technological innovation that comes down the pike net.

It seems like every week there’s something new netizens absolutely must be part of, lest they get left behind. But a lot of the new “stuff” either never gets off the ground and is abandoned or it becomes outdated after something else displaces it from the "hot" list. In 99% of the cases, the "new facebook" or "next Google" was never a good candidate to challenge the original to begin with.

This time of the year, when the days grow shorter, I take inventory - personal inventory and INTERNET inventory. Sit back, relax, and get a better perspective. Imagine you are climbing a mountain that towers above the internet and the blogosphere and the facebook friends and all that. Look down on those "ant tribes" and think how YOU can be better than all that!

Find YOUR PERSONAL KEY and yours will be the blog or website others will flock to!

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.
