Prism Schism Google Shmoogle

Here is yet another aspect of daily digital life cementing my position that you need to be OFF the cloud.

I just spiffed up an old Dell Latitude laptop - reloaded the OS and made it a lean, mean writin' machine. My data is my data, on the HD, CDs and USBs. If I do need some kind of cloud-based wordsaver I simply gmail writings to myself. Check out these Drudgelines ::: NSA, FBI secretly mining data from Internet firms... 'THEY QUITE LITERALLY CAN WATCH YOUR IDEAS AS YOU TYPE'...

So, how is your S.E.O.??? In case you aren't aware (and maybe you don't even care) there have been some changes to the almighty Google Algorithm. Read on if you and your blog are suffering from traffic loss and need to conduct anyalysis. Have fun with this!
You can receive my special newsletters - published only when necessary - by clicking on the envelope icon below - then you'll be on my mailing list. Thank-you very much! Don't worry - I will not share it or sell or compromise my list (or your privacy) in any way, shape or form!

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.
