Back in November, I wrote a series called “Press Publish.” While I didn’t trumpet it as such, one intention behind its four parts was to clarify the problems that stand in the way of a more constructive, equitable, and robust online culture. The longer-term ambition of the site was to foster solutions to those problems. The current poverty of that culture is not responsible for the death of Culture Ramp—that blame falls solely to me—but it does mean that, for the foreseeable future, nothing both so ambiguous and ambitious as Culture Ramp stands much chance of surviving, let alone thriving. For now, you need a hook.
