Brian Abrams has written a classic of the oral-history genre, this time on Kindle and about Gawker. Mr. SICHA:

There’s a huge male energy that’s a sort of muscularity that I like about Gawker. It’s brash, but it’s also really outward-looking. The thing about the straight men who work there, they don’t have any qualms about seizing any editorial territory. It’s sort of [un]real. They’ll cover anything, while the rest of us are sort of like, “I know about books.” That’s a self-limiting thing.

Further: I know the only person ever to receive an unequivocally positive recommendation after leaving Denton’s employ.

I really like my pictures; my homosexualist-lock-screens project is what I am most proud of in living memory; this personal Weblog is an absolute cultural treasure.

And, last but not least, I don’t like you, either.
