Cool to read about someone that controls so much creative content on the web. 19,000 submissions a day? Wow. I thought it was interesting to hear the strategy of one website a week - throw it up, see if it sticks. Normally I would cite quality over quantity, but in these cases the quality is up to the community.

Thanks for the article. When they're ready to look at the humor side of the web again, I'd like to hear from guys at Break.com, EBaum's, YTMND, or College Humor. College Humor is the only one I frequent anymore, but they're all pretty engrained into the WWW.

Hate to spoil the spirit here, but I thought it was a great interview. He has a great idea: shotgun approach, user content, less than low-key advertising. If you don't like a meme genre, don't go there.

And you need to put in the bit about the 1905 cat postcard, for all those who figure this is a new phenomenon.

I somehow did not get anything out of this. Somehow someone who feels that a large iPod touch is awsome just does not make me want to read on. This reads like an Apple fanboi and 14 year olds social networking kool aid sermon. Yes he did criticize an Apple product but it is one that is universally noted for sucking the big one. I am sure he is very smart so no insult intended but this was boooooooring!

How about gettting Bryan DelRizo of NVIDIA on and ask him about the cuda cores that are not being used on the Fermi? (don't tell him I suggested it :-) )

Rest assured, we have a couple of big, hardware-oriented ones for future issues. Do you guys have any suggestions? Your wish is our command...well, within reason.

Grumpy Pants Day?  Did I not get that memo?  

I love all the tight-ass grumpy sourpusses commenting on this article.  Get out much?  Get laid much?  It's Friday folks. Relax.

Insult people much just because they don't like an article and let the website know their thoughts (which I believe is why there is a "Comments" section and not an "Only positive comments praising the article" section)?

 I find the fail.blog funny occasionally.  Not much meat in this interview but don't give up on the basis of these reviews.

I agree on the not giving up part. I may have found this one not worth my time, but I am hopeful that future ones will be of interest to me.

So it's about macs and cats, and useless web sites. I'll pass.

that guy and all of his sites are the worst of the worse. It's like he's taking the worst memes and then making them even worse an unoriginal. He doesn't get it that the internet has moved on and that it's not really that fun for the 95% of us who doesn't give a shit anymore.

I didn't read htis article and that's because if i ever met this guy i'd give him a good punch to the jaw for making my stumbling even worse.

Steve Jobs would be in interesting interview, should his apparent d-bagginess NOT get in the way. MaxPC vs the Lord of MACintosh - i think that might be an interesting interview, for sure.

Steve Jobs not being a total douche is a physical impossibility, anyway.

Thart interview was a waste of time on the podcast, and now a waste of an article.  I find nothing "Maximum PC" about the LOLcats guy.
