    6 years ago this week on 6/6/06 


    i became editor of LAist.
    the little blog that could.
    the cool kids were reading us when i started, but not many more.
    but nowadays everyones at least heard of it
    so the other day when this guy –
    a gentleman who definately tells it like it is –
    said, “LAist is the only LA blog in my Reader”
    its pretty much the best compliment i could receive.
    because sure you can do something good alone,
    and sure you can do something good with paid pros,
    but to do it with a beautiful group of people
    none of whom are being paid
    and together you watch it blossom rapidly into something thats a staple
    for tens of thousands of people a day.
    and to be able to do it in your pajamas?
    and it cowers
    to no one?
    thats something worth celebrating.
    i should have a bbq soon.
    like in olden times.
