A brief conversation between recently deposed Daily News gossip columnist Lloyd Grove and New York Magazine:
You mentioned some mysterious “multimedia” plans. Is blogging involved?
Well, Nick Denton asked me to guest-edit Gawker, an offer which I stupidly accepted.
How long is the gig?
I’m starting on Monday, and I think Monday is all I can do. I know nothing about the process. I assume I’ll write stuff that interests me and try not to have too many misspellings. From what I gather, the job mostly means being really vicious and adopting a tone of incapacitated envy.
Do you feel like you failed?
