Week Around The -Ists

Londonist is one of thirteen in the worldwide Gothamist network. Once a week, the editors of each site - from SFist to Shanghaiist - compile some of their most interesting posts into a neat digest. Check out what's been going on elsewhere in the ist-a-verse:

  • Torontoist introduced the internet to a video of a pigeon riding the subway, just like a human! The internet took it from there.
  • Chicagoist looked at the case of a student suspended from school for creating a Facebook page criticizing one of his teachers.
  • Gothamist finally learned the Governor Paterson bombshell, and the possible scandal prompted Paterson to drop his run for governor. Still, many want him to resign.
  • SFist chuckled with nerdy glee after UC Berkeley started its own Quidditch league.
  • Seattlest brushed up on the story of native son Kurt Cobain with Charles R. Cross' Heavier Than Heaven: A Biography of Kurt Cobain.
  • DCist reported on a ruling against opponents of same sex marriage.
  • LAist stumbled deep into a controversy by reporting that animal rights activists were threatening to protest at a UCLA researcher's child's school.
  • Londonist pondered the significance of the Borg-like design for the new US Embassy building. Is the defensive design more or less worthy than the runners-up?
  • Austinist noted that Facebook will open an office in the neighborhood.
  • Phillyist started a debate about the circus, just by going there.
