Eye is completely, almost annoyingly, obsessed with charts, diagrams, and other math-based minutiae. It’s like their thing now! (Well, that, and articles written by Kate Carraway about her personal life.) But that doesn’t mean we weren’t delighted to open up the paper this morning and see, on the very tip-top of page five, beside their masthead and above their letters, that they’d devised formulas for determining “which websites are essential feeds and which ones are only recycling what you’ve already read on Yahoo News.” It appears that, in Eye‘s eyes, we are the former! We’re “Gawker – Fark – (US Weekly/Stillepost)”; “all the insidery snark that fits.” And here we are, writing about it in an insidery and snarky fashion!
Other publications were not so lucky: Toronto Life is “New York Magazine – New York Magazine,” and the Huffington Post (what’s that doing there?) is “Drudge Report + Hipster Runoff.” Maclean’s, meanwhile, was hailed(?) as “(Daily Beast + Rabble) x National Post.”
Because we are snarky and insidery, we tried to think of a formula to fit Eye, but we’re befuddled. (Toronto Life + Spacing? Some random personal blog + NOW – The Daily Worker? Some publication that really likes charts + the Toronto Star?) So we’re putting it to you, dear readers, to aid us in our quest: tell us what formula fits Eye in the comments.
