Debate about grant money with Everyblock sale to MSNBC

Print More

Journalists get snippy, maybe jealous of Everyblock buyout by MSNBC and Holovaty’s sucesss.

Founder Adrian Holovaty is mainly involved these days with another open source project, Django, and his own post on the deal drew a string of attaboys from around the world. There are no reports of him tooling around his home town of Chicago in a fancy car, buying fancy threads, building a fancy home or buying Oprah Winfrey dinner.
