The natural form of online media is the exchange, not the blast. Tommy's ethos gives us the best chance of recapturing the honesty of blogs, before their spirit was sapped by the tastes of the Facebook masses. 'We put truths on the internet.' That's Tommy's motto. I can subscribe to it. Dauntingly, it's down to our writers to provide a constructive but critical voice in an American culture. And it's down to our product managers, designers and developers to encourage a similar tone in the discussions sparked by stories.
