Hello again, welcome back to the great game. With episode #61, Game of Thrones moves strongly forward into the end game of its narratives; setting up some of the last conflicts that the show will concentrate on, and moving the characters forward towards their “final” destinations. Several characters make remarks about…
Writing or otherwise discussing the future climate of Earth is … not always easy.
The next (?) legal difficulty facing the Gizmodo Media Group is a lawsuit about an article published at Deadspin last year.
Yes, I know this got mentioned a week ago, but I still have something to say.
So I only saw this article mentioned at The Root and they didn’t really talk much about it, other than to mention that they got more traffic. Of course if one of us Kinja user community blogs talked about it I’m sorry I’m repeating content. Edited to add: Clashtalk had an article on it, I forgot to check, oops.
Two Fusion articles today asked a pretty good question: why
do companies that say they are concerned about the environment give to
politicians who don’t share that concern? In typical
Gawker Gizmodo Media Group fashion, neither
of these articles saw fit to look in the mirror.
Current Gizmodo Technology Editor Mr. Nuñez is on his way out of Gizmodo.
Zbigniew Brzezinski was one of the most prominent architects of US foreign policy during the 1960s and 1970s. With his death last evening, the world has lost one of its most active “fighters” for the end of Soviet-occupied Eastern Europe.
First episode aired last week. An episode airs tonight. Four more episodes after tonight. Here’s an informative press release from 3 weeks ago.
A recent article by Rob Bricken giving his forecasts into how io9’s staff will die1 reminded me that I had no idea who would inherit io9 if Rob did accidentally get exploded during the filming of a Transformers film. So here’s my quick guesses on the line of succession, based mostly on how long people have been…
Because of bandwidth issues, few websites automatically load all the comments. Kinja-driven websites are not immune to this website design trend. On the Kinja platform, a series of actions have to be performed to show “all” comments attached to an article. And I’m using scare quotes around all for a (temporary?)…
io9 is a website that often talks about things that might not be common knowledge. When doing so it employs a SPOILER WARNING image that someone1 made. It looks like this:
If you’re like me and you read science journalism published on Gizmodo, you may have noticed a few new voices.
Screenshots as a form of digital archaeology
I missed this earlier this week.
For a few months, Gizmodo, the flagship website of the Gizmodo Media Group, had no editor-in-chief. It still had several editors who managed content on the site but with the mid-November promotion of Katie Drummond (please ignore how that lists her job as “the editor-in-chief of Gizmodo.”) to the role of GMG executive…
A paper published online today for Nature suggests that the 1888 hypothesis for the primary division within Dinosauria should be overturned.
A recent io9 article about, of all things, the 1997 film Starship Troopers reminded us that the diverse Gizmodo Media commenting and writing communities have different opinions on how to define football. Obviously the solution here is for someone on the ODeck to claim they know everything.
io9 was launched on 2 January, 2008. Let’s look back at how it has celebrated its birthdays.
