@SkinnyNerd Cash allows publishers to accomplish a variety of different goals. Among other things, it helps us pay writers, develop and commission even more longform journalism, and build out more great sites (most recently The Billfold). The Awl has always refused to compromise its editorial voice for the sake of sheer revenue growth, and that ethos is a huge part of why it's so exciting to work here.

@Choire Sicha@facebook Agreed! And digital publishers in general need to get better at making that argument to advertisers.

@Dave Bry Have you read Heidegger's "The Letter on Humanism"? Despite his deeply unfortunate political choices, it's a pretty thrilling takedown of Sartre's humanism!

On TED: Just Admit It

Nathan Jurgenson's blog post, titled 'Against TED,' sums it up for me: "TED’s popularity means that it plays an important role in how we understand the link between technology and society, and the corporate, evangelical, noninclusive, and ultimately out-of-touch vision it promotes needs to be replaced."
