I think there are two types of cynicism at play. The first being the kind that comes out of genuine detachment from a system you can’t change, and the second comes out of a genuine detachment with yourself. Gawker found a way to monetize the second one, and it’s enjoyable to watch that cynicism turn into apathy.

Great write-up, Ryan.
