RIP in Peace Gawker

I never thought I would see the day.

After nearly fourteen years of operation, Gawker.com will be shutting down next week…Nick Denton, the company’s outgoing CEO, informed current staffers of the site’s fate on Thursday afternoon, just hours before a bankruptcy court in Manhattan will decide whether to approve Univision’s bid for Gawker Media’s other assets.

Evidently Gawker.com is dunzo, and the staffers are being dispersed to “other editorial roles, either at one of the other six sites or elsewhere within Univision”.
