Gawker birthday

Gawker birthday
: It’s Gawker’s birthday. What an amazing rise. In only a year, Gawker:

– Established itself as a must-read in media, fashion, and other stratospheric demographics.

– Got quoted everywhere, including on Page One of the New York Times.

– Established weblogs as a real media property.

– Made a star of and a paid career for foundress Elizabeth Spiers.

Creating not only a great new media property but proving the concept for a new medium is an amazing accomplishment by Nick Denton. He won’t toot that horn. So I will. Congratulations, Nick, Choire, and Elizabeth.
