On Literally The Worst Word On The Planet

I just remember hearing the British use "literally" correctly, and thinking they sounded smart and self-deprecating. Now the word makes my skin crawl. I blame reality TV (which I love with a blazing passion) for all this. The people on those shows use terms incorrectly and there's no correction. Worth it for the lolz, but painful nonetheless.

On The Great RSS Debate Rages in Nerddom

I don't care what anyone says. RSS feeds are the bomb-dot-com. They filter out the garbage and look legit at work!

Is it ironic that this looks like a high school cafeteria? Is there a popular table?

On Matt Cherette Is Going To Move To New York City

Did it occur to some of you cranks that, rather than writing about Gawker as a favor, The Awl wrote something Gawker-related because readers have asked for it? I know I have - and I have zero connection to New York or media.

I'd read a tell-all, in any format, about Gawker for the same reasons I would read a book about working for Playboy magazine in the 1960s. Can you think of another relevant publication that has nurtured (well, hired and paid) and exposed this much new writing/editing talent in the past decade? Not to mention Gawker's control-freak tendencies when it comes to any coverage it gets. You'd be a damn fool to have a first-hand perspective on the inner workings of a company like Gawker and not utilize it when looking for topics to cover. Especially when you're writing for a blog that covers media. Doy.

Give Awl readers some credit. We all know about 'legacy' issues. Many of us came to the Awl because of them. That's a big part of why many of us love it - and/or why so many of us comment on Gawker-related content. It's fascinating.

I know there's a Bagger Vance joke in here somewhere.
