Serious Ad Money for Blog

  • Ad Age (reg req): Sony Pays $25,000 a Month for Gawker Blog. Sony Consumer Electronics e-Solutions Group is the exclusive sponsor for the launch of LifeHacker, a blog that goes live today about the software of personal gadgetry by Gawker Media, according to the online company. The deal, which also includes placements on Gizmodo, Gawker's earlier gadget title, will cost Sony in the range of $25,000 a month, according to a source close to the deal. The sponsorship runs for about three months.
  • Well, there go the pay scales at Nick Denton's company...

    I'm not nuts about the sole-sponsor ad model, but it's obviously going to be a wave of the future in personal journalism.

    Finding Common Ground in Translation

    I'm reminded of that by a call this morning from AntĂłnio Granado, who writes about science for Publico, a major daily newspaper, and posts frequently to his own journalism blog. He's reviewing We the Media, which has just been published in Portuguese.

    We Americans tend to take for granted the ascendency of English. While English has become the international language of commerce, science and aviation -- and it's becoming a common second language around the globe -- cultures are holding onto what makes them unique. As they should.

    One of the reasons I like to travel is meeting people who aren't like me in their own lands. We all refract life through human lenses, but our cultures determine a lot about who we are beyond that.
