Office of self promotion: T/S founder named to Silicon Alley 100 list

Posted by andreaitis on December 9, 2009

Here’s LD, clocking in at #42 on Silicon Alley Insider’s annual top 100 list.  This year, the list actually goes up to 113 and represents “people in the NYC digital community who did really cool stuff.”

No worries, world.   Our collective T/S ego remains in check.  And if it dares to swell a bit we simply have to pull up the other Silicon Alley Insider story about us, the one that called us boring five minutes after our alpha launch.

Ok, that’s not fair.  It was more like 12 hours after we launched.

Seriously – on behalf of LD – we’re excited to make the list.  Thanks, SAI.

Top 50. Not too shabby, LD.

denton vs goliath

gawker’s nick denton to the la times:  i scoff at your puny web site

he can, too.  la times set a traffic record: 127 million pageviews.  but, um, so did gawker media: 257 million pageviews.

henry blodgett put it best: “In five years, what’s left of the LA Times and New York Times will look more like Gawker (in terms of staffing and publishing velocity), or they won’t exist.”

funny how we still hear the term new media….except when we do, it’s usually from someone embalmed in old media.
