Geeky New Yorkers Prefer Media Establishment

Lockhart Steele, Gawker Media’s Managing Editor, is posting on ValleyWag.
In one post on Nicholas Butterworth, Steele addresses the cultural differences between Silicon Alley and Silicon Valley.

Internet industry life in New York City is different than in the Valley. People here don’t listen to podcasts not produced by NPR, and they don’t read Scoble. (If they do either, they aren’t admitting it.) And the sine qua non press hit for your new webtacular isn’t a TechCrunch profile; it’s a story in the Times’ Sunday Styles section.



About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
