Fun Size Bytes


  1. ☛ Today from me at Forbes, 1500 words on Saturday Night Fever, 1977 and the intersection of punk and disco.

    openareas:

    Ok. Remember my crisis of faith about writing long form over writing for page views? Well, I want to convince Forbes that posting more stuff like this is worth it. So now more than ever I would appreciate clicks and tweets and reblogs and whatever so when my editors ask why I’m writing long ass shit I can point to the page views and convince them people want to read it. 

    This has been a beg.

    Thank you.

    As someone who considers himself fortunate that he has outlets for his “long form” writing (TUAW and Sunday mornings, respectively) I encourage you to read this to that “sound bytes” of writing do not become all we read.
