In addition to Susan Orlean (whose website includes a weblog by Jason Kottke for the film Adaptation) Rebecca Mead, Malcolm Gladwell, and Michael Specter all provide archives of their writing for the New Yorker on their personal websites:

Rebecca Mead breaks out articles, Talk of the Town pieces, and reviews into three pages.

Malcolm Gladwell lists his articles and Talk of the Town pieces on one giant archive page.

Michael Specter does the same thing: one long archive page.

The nearly identical approach to alt tags, the ubiquity of PDF links, and the very similar feel of these three sites, I'd bet they share a single designer. [Or maybe it's just some Adobe GoLive site wizard. Not my department.]

Since 2001 here at, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting that time.
