The Internet is shaped exactly like the Earth

I have decided to shut down Adam Riff™ on September 10, its 10th anniversary. It may continue on in microblog form, but I plan to focus on creating a digital periodical.

Consider this summer the "final season" of Adam Riff™ (this incarnation, at least).

    While I'm very sad to hear this, if anyone deserves the rest it's you.

    The end of an era.

    What a bummer.

    Are we talking Favretirement? Michael Jordan plays baseball? Barry Sanders?

  4. Horhay 30 May 10 at 11:11

    Do we get free merchandise?

    First Lost, then 24, now this. I can tell you which one has been most consistently enjoyable the last 10 years… Now how am I supposed to seem cool when I don't have your insane links to pass on to non-internet-savvy friends?

    You outlived them all.

    I also never realized that Adam RiffTM and I had the same birthday until just now. Don't know how that happened, and I've been reading it for basically 10 years.

    Godspeed, sir. Checking out "The Week of …" was always worth staying up for on Saturday night.
