trying to branch this conversation out from twitter to branch. i can't figure out how to get all the tweets and replies that are already in this convo from twitter into here
@Nick - i love the intent and progress of what your doing with Gawker.
@Fred - what AVC has done, i think, is proven that the comments section can be as important as the post itself. it teaches the readers, fans and followers of yours that stopping the read at the start of comments misses 60% of what's in your head on the topic.
an example - when i saw the brewster launch i wondered again if i had to leave android and get on iphone and wondered if that had made you switch. and i *loved* reading that this was a matter or principle for you, that switching for brewster would be a compromise of ethics somehow. its lovely and i felt it too.
