Now open: Knight News Challenge on Libraries

The Knight News Challenge on Libraries is now open for applications, asking people and organizations to submit ideas that address the question: How might libraries serve 21st century information needs?
Knight is offering more than $3 million for innovative ideas. The challenge is open to anyone— from public libraries to universities to businesses, nonprofits, and any individual who wants to collaborate, partner and ally with libraries. Even if you’ve never innovated in the library space before and have an idea, we want to hear it.  If you have questions about the application,
you can join them for virtual office hours to learn more about the News Challenge. There will also be hosting an Ask Me Anything reddit chat on Monday, Feb. 29, from 7 – 9 p.m. ET. Details on the chat and information on virtual office hours can be found here.
To enter and for more information, go to and answer a few questions by March 24. For more information take a look at this press release and blog post. Follow #newschallenge on Twitter for updates and please spread the word through your networks.

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.
