Jonathan Poritsky writing about the end of his readership to The Verge:

On what planet is disclosure a suggestion?

Full disclosure: Poritsky emailed me his post. Wait, maybe I should phrase that differently:

EXCLUSIVE: Poritsky emailed me his post.

That’s better. I gave up on The Verge awhile ago myself, but hey that’s just me.1

To be fair, The Verge has some of the best patent litigation coverage on the web — they do a great job and should be commended for that, but the things Poritsky points our are just, well, really egregious. The rest, the reviews, commentary, news, is all poor on a daily basis and really should be better given the talent level of The Verge’s staff.

That said, if you do dump The Verge, why not subscribe to Poritsky’s site? That’s what I just did. It’s certainly better looking than The Verge.2


  1. Fun note, my post is listed in Wikipedia, of which I take great pride being the critical guy’s post on Wikipedia. 

  2. Exception to that permalink button, that’s gotta go. Update: He changed them, good man.
