I forgot to mention it last week, but Automatic Media (the umbrella for smart sites like Suck, Feed, and Plastic) bit the dust. Scott Rosenberg’s remembrance of Suck and Feed brought back a flood of memories for me as well. I can remember reading Suck for the first time and thinking, “This is what this whole Web thing is all about.” This was back when almost nobody knew who the Sucksters were, and before they had an ongoing feud with The Netly News. It seems almost impossibly long ago now.
