New York Magazine ‘s Vanessa Grigoriadis does a great job deconstructing Gawker—which I’m too important to read—and its business model. The headline is perfect: “Everybody Sucks.”

Krugman (he who needs no first name) delivers a good explanation today of how the new Treasury-backed superfund may be masking problems, rather than solving them.

I also like this Louise Story story in the Times on trying to measure Web site audience size, something I suspect every web-based media outlet wrestles with. We certainly do.

We are trying to suppress our hatred of profit long enough to turn one.
