arianna maniacs set the scenes on fire

If you caught that Alphaville reference, good for you — you’re old. The Huffington Post launched today, an ambitious group blog and daily news digest helmed by Arianna Huffington and featuring a cast of dozens of newly minted celebloggers like Ellen Degeneres, Laurie David, John Cusack, David Frum, Mike Nichols and David Mamet. Our old pal Jonah makes appearances as well at the end of an already prolific week (see: Contagious Media Showdown, art show at New Museum). There have been plenty of articles and blog posts already, but starting today people can discuss the site’s content as much as the concept. Looking forward to that one.
