Valleywag Bites the Dust, Gawker Scoops It Up

Filed as News on November 13, 2008 2:57 am

In his ever present search for more money through slashing, Nick Denton of Gawker Media obviously concluded that the 1 million pageviews monthly on tech gossip rag Valleywag just won’t do. It has to go, and will do so at the end of the month according to Owen Thomas. Valleywag got to stick around two and a half years, but will live on as a part of Gawker Media flagship site Gawker, to which Thomas invites us for more snarky tech gossip.

I’m sure we’ll all be there.

Do read the VentureBeat piece on this, full of internal linking and gossipy stuff.

    What about The Consumerist? It’s getting the axe too, or at least being sold anyway. I hope a good company picks it up…
