Nick, working for Gawker Media was one of the best years of my life. I met the most talented people and got the ultimate crash course in how the media world functions. I’m so sad to see it go. Nonetheless, thank you for pushing the media industry forward, challenging the status quo, and intertwining it all with a vibrant community. It’s inspired me to start my own publication dedicated to city travel called Urbanist, which cares about its community from the very core.
I’m glad to see that you’re continuing to develop internet communities and very excited to see this new project come to fruition!
