Sunday reading: The Observer on Gawker

The Observer of London interviews the twisted minds that make my favorite guilty pleasure blog, Gawker, possible.

Quoths Jessica Cohen:
'Every morning I get out of bed for that temp in midtown who's sitting there already crying because she is so bored,' she says. 'We blogs are the voice of the underclass. The people who send in stuff to me are the assistant at Vanity Fair, the poor girl who just tripped and fell in the Condé Nast cafeteria. They are abused not just by corporate culture but by celebrity culture, and something cracks and they have to vent. Their revenge? Schadenfreude!'
