"I never even heard of this Culture11 site until I read that it was gone. If someone wants to know why it failed, extrapolate that out to other bloggers and web surfers, that was it. Having never seen it, all I can conclude is that it really must have sucked."
-- Dan Riehl
Logical assumption, Dan. Donald Douglas has more. I might eventually decide to heap a bit more opprobrium on the wretchedness that was Culture 11, but I'm not feeling it now. I saw the Washington Monthly story right before I had to leave my house Tuesday, en route to (a) pay the water bill and (b) attend an important conference. The Monthly comes at the story from the wrong angle.
What was really wrong with Culture 11 was . . . well, everything. And I am not going to write everything this morning.
