The Neiman Foundation Blog at Harvard University has a great article about my favorite tech website Gizmodo (and its parent company Gawker Media) and how they have tapped into independent artists to help spice up their posts with exclusive illustrations found nowhere else on the web.

In this age of information overload, I think Gizmodo is certainly thinking forward with their inclusion of such artwork in their posts because, hell, let’s face it, anybody can write about tech these days. But it takes people like the staff and editorial decision-makers at Gizmodo to make reading tech news fun and exciting and not just a rehash of PR babble (one main reason why I prefer Gizmodo’s seemingly amateurish writing style to Engadget’s pristine tech reporting — one is fun to read, the other is just plain boring, and I’ll let you figure out which one is which).

Anyway, I think this is so cool of Gawker/Gizmodo to do because not only does it enhance the experience of reading their site but it also supports and raises awareness of upcoming talent in the arts. Right on Gizmodo, I like what you’re doing!
