H10: My Favorite Story: Joe Thompson
Editor’s Note: The HODINKEE tenth Anniversary Weekend, or H10 as we’re calling it here at HQ, is currently only a couple days away. We figured it would be fun paving the way to the enormous end of the week to request our editors and authors to each pick one from their #1 stories from the main decade of HODINKEE to share again with all of you. It very well may be a story with individual importance, a story that changed their relationship to fake watch prices or only one that they truly need everybody to look at once more. Every day until December 7 we’ll be distributing an alternate individual’s choice. Enjoy.
As some of you may know, I have recently completed my freshman year at the ‘Dink. (Benevolently, the initiation has halted. I will not say which of the veterans was the harshest – yet she knows what it’s identity is.) So, I have a somewhat extraordinary interpretation of my #1 HODINKEE post.
I started perusing HODINKEE as an ink-stained veteran of old media, hoping to perceive what the new media was up to in the fake watch prices field. I was perusing, not as a fake watch prices gatherer, or even a fake watch prices darling, yet as a fake watch prices columnist.
The rap on the “online journals,” as they were called at that point, was that they comprised basically of chaps and girls using iPhones, close behind of wrist shots, for posting with short messages (the more limited the better) clarifying why they adored (or undeniably less regularly, didn’t cherish) fake watch prices x, y, and z. The objective was to convey breaking news about new items, frequently with hurried shots on once in a while distractingly bristly wrists.
But not at HODINKEE. Here I found, in alarming subtlety, the force of the new media. Models flourish, however one article always fixed in my memory is “Reference Points: Understanding the Paul Newman Daytona.” It showed up on April 3, 2014. The creator was Mr. Ben Clymer.
At WatchTime, where I was supervisor in-boss, we didn’t cover the vintage fake watch prices market a lot. (It’s difficult to cover the closeout scene appropriately when you just distribute multiple times a year.) But, as one who had been covering the fake watch prices industry for, all things considered, always, I knew a little about the PND.
What I didn’t understand until I read the piece was accurately how little: it was close to nothing. Strangely, the experience was invigorating. The journalist in me couldn’t however help yet appreciate what was a model of fake watch prices item reporting.
This new media was not short, shallow stuff. It was a profound plunge into the set of experiences, foundation, legend, estimating (more than 20 years’ worth), and creation of the Paul Newman, just as examination, as Ben expressed it, of “how this canine of a fake watch prices turned out to be such an icon.”
There were additionally swell photographs. What’s more, a boffo video of Ben appearing and talking about six top PND models with Daytona master Andrew Shear. Cost to the peruser? Not a penny.
It was evident that this blogosphere thing, done along these lines, was a game changer.
