the new york times likes it when our geeky barbarians storm conde nast empire (presumably not to bring about its downfall)

Reporting on the recent acquisition of Ars Technica, David Carr even gives us a little shoutout:

True to form, the captains of the Condé Nast Death Star have not meddled with kids from Reddit — it was founded by a couple of students at the University of Virginia — any more than they have told Ms. Wintour what cover models to put on Vogue.
It's true, we remain rather unmeddled-with, but I wonder if he's talking about the first or second Death Star. Can I be Chewbacca?

And when do we stop being kids? I just turned 25 after all. It must be Steve's boyish good looks...
