|End of Civilization as we know it? Or just a new weblog?
Gawker is a Manhattan weblog magazine edited by Elizabeth Spiers, designed by Jason Kottke and published by Nick Denton. It is a live review of city news, and by news we mean, among other things, urban dating rituals, no-ropes social climbing, Condé Nastiness, downwardly-mobile i-bankers, real estate porn -- the serious stuff.
Actually- they don't take theirsevlevs as seriously as the audience they purport to cater to:
Q. How many Gawker readers does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A. Two. One to mix martinis while the other calls the electrician.
Worth a click.
