Jezebel

Gawker’s new site Jezebel is pretty bad-ass, with perhaps the most bad-ass thing about it (besides its color scheme, which is a lot like this site’s) being that it shows the number of views for each article right on the index page. I wonder if that includes RSS views.

From their manifesto:

To put it simply, Jezebel is a blog for women that will attempt to take all the essentially meaningless but sweet stuff directed our way and give it a little more meaning, while taking more the serious stuff and making it more fun, or more personal, or at the very least the subject of our highly sophisticated brand of sex joke. Basically, we wanted to make the sort of women’s magazine we’d want to read, a magazine that would never actually see glossy paper because big-name advertisers and the publishers who kowtow to them don’t much like it when you point out the vulgarity of a $2000 handbag.

Jeff Jarvis has a good writeup today.
