Pine for the early years

Friday May 04th 2007, 12:53 pm

The two sites I miss most from the early days of the World Wide Web are (which has been promising to come back for years now) and Feed (which was once at and is now gone for good). Suck had a format that I still think is perfect for the web: one article, every day, filled with links to all kinds of interesting things all over the web on. They even used to publish Pete Bagge cartoons. It was brilliant.

Feed also published an article every day on their front page, but being a more rounded magazine and a fuller selection of content, much like Slate or Salon, though culturally savvier than the former and not quite as loony as the latter. The best was a column they had called “Work” in which they interviewed all kinds of people about their jobs, and in the process consistently discovered fascinating things about every walk of life.

Sometimes I really miss Suck and Feed.
