I was wondering why Gizmodo was sucking so badly for the last few weeks. I used to love that site. I used to check it a couple times a day, now I don’t even check it at all. At least there’s a reason.

Yep. It has been going downhill for a few months. I figured Denton would have had a replacement by now (instead of just not updating).

I’d be interested in knowing why he left, Gizmodo gets a lot of traffic.

…and I’m sure he knows that pastures always seem greener on the other side.

I noticed that they were claiming “server problems” recently.

I guess that wasn’t the reason for the paucity of posts.

Engadget looks a lot like Gizmodo.. Anyway, I would leave too. Especially if I was the meat and potatoes of the site. Why split the revenue with others? Blogging is not like the recording industry where the talent is “slave” to the distribution (aka middleman).. ah, but I digress.

I thought they were going to change the name of the site to “cell-modo.”
