✍️ Media death ☠️

🎵 The song for this post is Cumbia de los Muertos, by Ozomatli. 🎵

Looks like The Outline is closing down. That's really too bad—I liked their Elixir post, and I thought their style, while often rightfully clowned on, did feel pretty fresh. It was often snarky and/or contrarian, but even the worst examples were at least moderately entertaining. And, like Gawker, you're not doing anything interesting if you don't go too far every once in a while; you only find the line by realizing you've crossed it. If you've never crossed it, you don't really know where it is.
