I think there’s still a huge place in the world for traditional long-form journalism and storytelling, as opposed to this pervasive Twitterverse-type shit that tells stories in bits and pieces with sixteen sidebars and fifteen charts instead of 5000 words—at least in the magazine and newspaper world—of properly written straight-up fucking English.

People have stories they need to tell. Stories need room to develop. People who are too busy to tell their own stories need to have those stories told for them. The people telling these stories need room, too.

The world hasn’t lost its attention span for a good story, regardless of the medium. What’s sad, however, is that your tastes are being dictated by a class of people who can’t even write a coherent email. #truestory
