Here are a few things from around the web that may interest you:
“Looking for Love in One of the World’s Tiniest Religions” [via The Atlantic]
“Don’t Call them Mr. Mom: More Dads at home with kids because they want to be” [via Washington Post]
I’d be interested to hear how you think comments on DW affect the site. The comments are moderated, and in the beginning, I blocked dozens and dozens of commenters, many of whom followed me over from the TF, who I felt didn’t help foster the kind of community I envisioned for the site. I still continue to ban commenters from time to time, but it’s much rarer now. These days, I think the DW commenters reflect one of the smartest, most articulate, thoughtful web communities I’ve seen. Would you agree? “How Comments Shape Perceptions of Sites’ Quality—and Affect Traffic:
Even if you don’t realize it, unmoderated comments change the way you think about what you read.” [via The Atlantic]
Thank you to those who submitted links for me to include. If you see something around the web you think DW readers would appreciate, please send me a link to firstname.lastname@example.org and if it’s a fit, I’ll include it in Friday’s round-up. Thanks!
