Peter Kaplan, grizzled editor: [Indiscriminant grumbling.]
Kushner: Or about bloggers! Everybody wants to know about bloggers.
Kaplan: [Sighs.] Let’s see, how about — Scocca, why don’t you profile the Gawker King, Nick Denton?
Tom Scocca, quasi-expat erstwhile media editor: I already did.
Kaplan: Right. Calderone! Why don’t you write about how blogs are changing old media?
Michael Calderone, “Off the Record” reporter: That’s what every media story’s about these days.
Kaplan: Right. Sicha! Write something whimsical about how bloggers are now seamlessly moving into old-media staff jobs.
Choire Sicha, “Transom” editor and former Gawker editor: [Rolls eyes, smirkingly drags on cigarette.] No. [Taps on Treo, accepting job offer from Nick Denton.]
Kaplan: Hmm. Oh, wait. Here we go. Hey, new kid!
Chris Shott, junior reporter: [Tentatively.] Yes?
Kaplan: Like every other young media person in New York, these bloggers must drink. Go write about their drinking habits!
Shott: But I think they drink with all the same thirtysomething media people everyone drinks with.
Kaplan: Ignore those other people!
