Why not follow davelucas on twitter?Twitter makes a shocking disclosure ::: key media outlets, tech figures, high-level elected officials, and influential journalists such as myself were the apparent targets of last week's "Chinese hack." According to C-Net, "22 percent of the accounts linked to the analyst's list of 100 most influential media outlets may also have been breached, according to PeerReach, including @nytimes, @reuters, @cnn, and @foxnews."

Over at Forbes, one of my favorite tech writers, Parmy Olson, asks "What Would Happen If America Got Free, 'Nationwide' WiFi?" I know the answer! It would drive stakes into the hearts of the mobile phone carriers!

via Stop the Cap! We have video: "How to Swap Out Your Leased Time Warner Cable Modem and Avoid $3.95/Mo Fee".

Media Manips ::: The photo above, in which Noam Chomsky is holding a placard, is part of a global campaign organized by Taiwanese students against media monopoly in Taiwan. Chomsky's photo has been circulated widely via online social media since early January 2013. However, a number of news outlets recently reported that he was misled by Taiwanese anti-media monopoly activists into supporting the campaign. What has exactly happened? Who misled Chomsky? Oiwan Lam investigates.

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.
