I have just read that efforts are being made to archive “the entirety” of Gawker.com material due to fears that the content of this now-defunct website will be bought and destroyed by billionaires who did not like the content generated by Gawker.com:
Reported suitors have included Peter Thiel—who bankrolled the legal campaign that ultimately crushed the site—and more recently Mike Cernovich, who the site once described as a “D-list right-winger.”
The whole piece about this is, by turns, scary and infuriating.
A phrase repeated in the article is “the billionaire problem.” Indeed. I believe the entire world has fallen prey to The Billionaire Problem, a circumstance I will never see corrected in my lifetime, I hate to realize and acknowledge.
