Mentioned on Diggnation

A few weeks ago, I wrote an article that poured one out for GeoCities, the ancient network of websites that Yahoo axed after buying it for way too much money. The article, “Goodbye GeoCities: 7 Retro Things We’ll Miss Forever,” hit the Digg front page and top in all topics with over 1400 Diggs.

But more importantly, it earned a spot on last week’s episode of Diggnation (skip the intro, it’s the second segment above… or follow this link). That’s right. Being mentioned on an actual television show every week isn’t enough — I’d like to be mentioned by two drunk guys on a couch in a web show instead.

It’s been a goal of mine for about 3 years to get an article on Diggnation. Check that one off the list.

Researching for Tosh.0 on Comedy Central

Tosh.0 is a weekly half-hour variety show hosted by Daniel Tosh that makes fun of the internet and my job is integral to that concept. I pitch the best of the web to the writer’s room and what they don’t use, I write about with my own take at the Tosh.0 blog. I also manage some of the social media presence and a lot of the video distribution.

It’s been more than a month. Here are a few of my posts so far:
