Choire Sicha  

Cofounder, The Awl

I co-own a website called The Awl, which is for smart people who like fun things. Maybe you are one of those people: please join us! Before that, I did a lot of other things. I was a paralegal, I worked in homeless shelters, I ran an art gallery, and for a while I worked for universities interviewing teenage research subjects about their sex lives, which was really weird and more than a little awkward. Also I was the editor of Gawker (twice), and I wrote a bunch for the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times and also for a suspiciously large number of magazines exactly one time. Right now, I live in Brooklyn with two cats, which is the right number of cats. (With just one cat, the cat thinks it's a person; with three cats, they all start to plot against you. Two cats, however, is just right.)
