Emily Gould on oversharing

posted by Jason Kottke   May 22, 2008

I was told that everyone in the NYC online media scene needs to read this NY Times Magazine cover story by and about former Gawker editor Emily Gould and her oversharing problems. I was less than halfway through when I realized I’m not part of that scene, if I ever was. So, the outsider’s perspective: Gould’s story is a familiar one, well-written, and rings with truth in places with regard to microcelebrity and the difficulty of learning how much to share online.
