Gawker’s Nick Denton Loses a $100 Bet (Video)
Before the Web came around, the New York media scene was clubby, self-obsessed and boozy. Now everything has changed!
Except not really.
Here’s a video featuring Gawker Media boss Nick Denton; Curbed’s Lockhart Steele, who helped Denton build his business; Rex Sorgatz, a “microcelebrity” once covered obsessively by Denton’s blogs; and Reuters columnist Felix Salmon, who writes about Denton a lot. Also featured: Samantha Ronson, who knows Lindsay Lohan.
If you don’t want to spend a couple minutes watching Salmon narrate the event (and you should, because Felix is an entertaining person even when he’s sober), Sorgatz has the concise version.
