Gothamist Shuts Down
This one hit me hard. Gothamist’s sister site published my favorite San Francisco news site, SFist. It was one of my go-to websites every morning. We’ve had so many fabulously productive poops together.
I’m bummed because, as far as I saw, SFist actually got it. Old media players just posted recycled broadcast videos and lukewarm paragraphs as a synopsis with the hope you’d watch the video. This never made sense to me. You can’t watch a videos when you’re bored in a meeting. You can’t skim videos. You can’t link to a quote in videos.
Maybe I’m showing my age, but I much prefer text (née print) journalism…
