Who’s That Guy?

April 24th, 2007 by Rachel

Most New Yorkers know that Gothamist is the place to go for updates on weather, local sports, city politics, accidents, protests, and other news you can use. I imagine the same is true for the “ist”s in other cities, from Austin to Shanghai.

But my favorite part of Gothamist is the frequent interviews with notable New Yorkers on all levels of the fame spectrum; anyone with a passion and a project is fair game. Past interviews include lots of folks we know and love, as well as the kind we’d like to, from iPod filmmakers to Scrabble champs.

If you click here, you might just see a familiar face, a chap called Larry Smith who spoke with Rachel Kramer Bussel about his vision for a storytelling magazine that blends user-generated content and light editing to tell every kind of story in every way imaginable.

We’re awfully proud to join the ranks of Gothamist interviewees, and awfully proud of the accomplishments and aspirations revealed in the Q&A. Got opinions, suggestions, or submissions? Tell SMITH.
