Shared Services

Have you noticed the new 'share' buttons I have added to newer posts?  They are designed to help you better organize your research, collaborate with others online, bookmark, re-blog and share the latest information .

Blogging is not dead. My blogs are active as ever... they are connected to twitter, weibo, facebook and Pinterest... and to special groups I've joined on facebook. My loyal readers are with me (some of you have been visiting since 2005 and a few even earlier! Thank-you!)  In the months to come, I'm planning to be a little more ative on weibo and I'm slowly (and I do mean slowly) building a Mendeley portfolio.

How do I add a Dave Lucas article to Mendeley?
Once you have navigated to a particular article, simply hover over the + share button to locate the social bookmarking buttons and click the ‘Add to Mendeley’ button. You will then be asked to log-in to your Mendeley account (unless you’re already signed in) and will be given the option to add tags or notes and take a website snapshot. The paper will then be added to your library, with all metadata extracted automatically.

I don't have Mendeley. How do I sign up?
Getting started with Mendeley couldn’t be easier. Either sign-up for a new account or log-in with your Facebook details at  Download the desktop software and Web Importer and away you go!

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.
