Buzzfeed.com Makes Its Move

Here’s an article about the ambitions of Buzzfeed to take on HuffPo/Newsbeast/Gawker that details some of the site’s big-name hires. Has Buzzfeed hired anyone new today?

Pixyland.org, also known as Peter Pan’s Home Page. The webzone of one Randy Constan, which has to be seen to be believed. Mock if you will, but the man fearlessly used the Internet to transcend society’s jibes, find his Tinkerbell and have a fairy tale wedding…

Also, I tracked down an archive of Vicious Rumors’ old Geocities site featuring the character Mitch Hardy.
