How the Snowflakes Won

quote [ The soft, sad freaks on an unprofitable website claimed victory in the battle for the internet’s soul and defined the worldview of a generation. ]

Sentimental nod-a-long. Interesting to hear that it's owned by the wordpress people for more than 2 years already.

Ah, reffing my favourite piece again:

There’s No Money in Internet Culture


the truth is that running a platform for culture creation is, increasingly, a charity operation undertaken by larger companies. Servers are expensive, and advertisers would rather just throw money at Facebook than take a chance on your weird, problematic network. Generating and incubating internet culture has little market value in and of itself.
