Fellow Balthazar eater!

I would actually jump over the whole Gawker controversy and just focus on other reasons one should follow Nick. I think Nick is a very sharp thinker, especially when he speaks on the evolution of media, on the evolution of media online. I remember his talk about 10 years ago, I think, at the South by Southwest conference, where he was talking about online comments and why most people have it completely backwards, trying to put badges on accounts and stuff like this. I just listened to his interview with Peter Kafka and also, as always, insightful. Finally, because I think Nick has good taste, he likes a restaurant that I used to love too, which is a French restaurant called Balthazar, and I used to live a few blocks away from him in Soho. So, a fellow New Yorker and a sharp thinker. Follow him.
