Around The Blogosphere 16 August 08

One of the neatest blogs following the Beijing Olympics is ljcfyi (in Beijing), where ljc has taken many spectacular photos of everything from Fuwas bumping around and doing headstands between sports to the different colors of the Water Cube morph cycle to everywhere her friends Piglet and Domo have traveled.

US guard Katie Smith blogs on her Olympic experience: "My folks arrived two days ago and they have been out and about seeing some of the sights and we are heading to the Great Wall on Saturday..."

Eva Balogh of Hungarian Spectrum comments on the high expectations of Hungarian sports commentators for Olympic medals, and analyzes why Hungary is not managing to meet those expectations.

Mycho posted a blog entry: Deceptions des Jeux olympiques de Pekin - "Mes déceptions de la semaine pour les JO de Pékin :- Laura Flessel..."

Cristina Quisbert writes from the 13th International Book Fair being held in La Paz, Bolivia [es]. She notes that the Vice-President Alvaro Garcia Linera hopes that the ability to buy books is not the privilege of just a few.

Daisy the Curly Cat posts that "This is a very sad day. Violette Noelle, affectionately known as "Sprout", will be laid to rest this morning."

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.
