What if we did a whole book of lists?

So we did it, and we thought, why just do one through 10, when you can tell a little story behind it. I think that's what really made it a success.

CNN: Many websites use lists for clickbait, not for shedding any light on the subject at hand.

Does this bother you? Wallechinsky: Oh, sure. One thing I don't like is where there's a list or a gallery and you have to click for No.

They're just trying to get you to have more page views and sell more ads. I don't want to have to do that.

CNN: Do you think the Internet has made us more tribal? Wallechinsky: You started to see that with the introduction of cable television.

It used to be that everybody watched the same news channels and that was it. The minute cable came in, you got that breakup of what people were watching. The Internet is just an extension of that. But what makes the Internet so great is that it's interactive. You can see opposing sources -- if you know how to use it. Oct 31, Pages.
