While I typically do not like to re-post other peoples articles or blog posts and prefer to share my own thoughts and opinions I just found a really great resource over at CSS Tricks.  Please check it out!

I have been getting an onslaught of email scams lately and it’s left me with some burning questions and has inspired me to write the most personalized blog posting to date.  Is there anything we can do to stop or prevent this problem? Is there a place for censorship in today's society? Would censorship serve to erode our First Amendment rights? And my biggest question, why do people do this? I am going to discuss spam, scams, and everything in between.

Has commercialism (advertiser's control) corrupted or enhanced quality and integrity?

Advertisers do try to influence the content of publications. A beer producer may pressure a magazine in which it buys ad space not to print articles on the dangers of drinking, or an airline may demand that their advertisements be withdrawn from publications that report airplane crashes.  It is true that the Chrysler Corporation has asked magazines to inform it about material that involves sexual, political, or social issues that might be considered provocative or offensive; and Proctor and Gamble does not want its advertisements placed near articles or advertisements about gun control, abortion, the occult, cults, or the disparagement of religion.  But does this affect the quality and integrity of the publication?  Which will remain in the publication, the advertisement or the object of the advertisers concern.

Should the idea of censorship used in the recording industry be applied to the internet?

Perhaps as a parent I have a biased opinion, but I do feel that it an incredibly important step that we as a society can take to protect children from Media Violence.  This has always been the main argument, calling for controls on media content are cast as efforts to protect the children, from to labeling it, restricting access to it, or censoring.  Children are different from adults, they are more vulnerable, impressionable, and less able to apply critical judgments on the appropriateness of media.

As most web developers know, Google Analytics is a very powerful (and free) way to track your websites metrics. Google Analytics provides some great information about what is happening on your website.  So what makes it such a great tool and why should you add it to your site?
