Sean Bonner: It’s All GOOD

The always wonderful Alissa Walker profiles Metblogs founder Sean Bonner in the latest GOOD magazine.

Walker writes:

Bonner, along with fellow web conspirator Jason DeFillippo, hit upon the Metblogs concept five years ago, when the two men made the startling discovery that the internet offered hardly any useful local information about their hometown, Los Angeles. There was nothing to be found about the best restaurants, stores, or late-breaking local news. “The alt-weeklies and local papers were full of syndicated content,” says Bonner. “Even if it was local, there was not an actual opinion.”

Well, one of our tipsters has an opinion. The astute reader who alerted us to this profile notes the pic of Bonner:

“The photo is hilarious — hipster cred. Bike, check. Tats, check. Nerd glasses, check.”
