I can tell you almost to the day I started reading Gawker: November 7, 2005. Not a particularly auspicious day, but due to a personal connection I was obsessed with the Peter Braunstein case (AKA The Fire Fiend, AKA The Halloween Rapist). I can safely say, without exaggeration, that I have read Gawker, Jezebel, Fusion, Splinter, Deadspin and/or some iteration thereof every day for 14 years. Always a lurker, sometimes a commenter, & a forwarder of articles of interest to my friends. I often held back from commenting knowing that I could never be as clever as the rest of you. I have a hard time seeing myself giving G/O any page views after last week.


So pour one out for the friends we met along the way and don’t forget:



Parking the other options here where I hope to see you around the net:
