Building a Web Media Empire on a Daily Dose of Fresh Links
While Mr. Denton does not edit the sites himself, he says he does encourage his writers to be "more trashy," jokingly explaining that he comes from "the Felix Dennis school of publishing." (Mr. Felix is the publisher of the young men's magazine Maxim.)

bit depressing to read about this trash led, google-market driven blogempire venture, run on 'catty writing and timely links'.
meanwhile boynton has discovered it's fairly easy to auto-emulate the preferred style simply by combining two generators. The fashionable formula would seem to be to take a bit of bile and then pornolize it. (latter via fiendish)

My own Blogempire venture would probably be more famous if there was more trash. Good thing I'm not in it for the money!

Oh I dunno Scott, sport is on the money in our culture. I tried to pornolise Barista but it doesnt help.
At least Mr Denton does Gizmodo, which is one of my faves.

Hope Mr W. doesn't suddenly announce a trash quota for Uber blogs. Although I guess I can do retro trash ok.
David...Gizmodo looks good.
But here's what the bile/pornolizer thought:

Miss b can rest easy, there will be no trash quotas around here.
