Five things that intrigue me right now

Five things that intrigue me right now:

1) This Nick Denton Quote. "The problem is the boring people online -- they're incredibly difficult to get rid of, because theyre often really nice."

2) ThinkUp 1.0. Finally! (Sorry, Gina and Andy, but a lot of people are excited for ThinkUp, which allows you to back up all your personal/social data to a web server.)

3) Nymwars. Once it gets an official name, you know trouble is brewing.

4) ASOS iPad App. This is the end game of the merger of editorial and commerce. Amazing experience and content integrated almost perfectly into a purchase environment. (There are mens and womens issues.)

5) Uproxx. I suspect most of us wouldn't know about it if Cajun Boy weren't writing there, but Uproxx is the latest in the growing genre of web culture blogs. And judging from posts like Alison Bries GIF-Able Moments and Thirteen Movie Poster Cliches, it could be the best.


Is this really you? Or another one of your friends with whom you've shared passwords?

I'm updating it on my Tumblr, but someone else is copying & pasting it in here.

Good to know. I'm finally ditching this sub then and have subbed to your Tumblr account. Btw, you can pander to your newly enlarged Tumblr base by commenting on the NBA lockout....
