My guy only reads the NY Times. So, I've started emailing him lists of things that caught my eye online outside of the Times. I've decided if it's good enough to send to him, it's good enough to share with you. Below are the things that caught my eye today:

1. I just got done with NY Mag's new "Who Runs New York?" issue. My favorite pieces included:

The Demon Blogger of Fleet Street: Nick Denton [Link]

The New Gangs of New York (literally a map and explanation of the groups of gangs and what they represent) [Link]

Downtown for sale: profile of Opening Ceremony's ultra hip founders, Humberto Leon and Carol Lim [Link]

The Anti-Facebook, Facebook. Profile on Diaspora. [Link]

2. Aston Kutcher (and other celebrities) has little Twitter Influence according to a detailed study conducted by Northwestern University. [Mashable]

3. Yikes. Add Heroin Addict to Lohan's repertoire? [NewsoftheWorld]
