He's Like the Gannett of Blogs

Jaysus, what has Nick Denton been up to? I mean, we all knew about Gawker and Wonkette and Fleshbot and Gizmodo (and we maintained a dim awareness of Defamer, although clearly not a bookmark), but apparently someone fed the Denton media empire after midnight and dropped it in the swimming pool (*), because his blogs have been spawning while no one was paying attention.

Screenhead? Jalopnik? Kotaku?

I predict that Denton’s reputation as the savvy, overmarketed blog-trepreneur soon turns a corner and his little Web empire collapses, ooooor possibly you’ll find me outside the Gawker Building in Times Square begging for a correspondent’s gig. Only time will tell.


Robin says…

Ooh! Ooh! Your Denton blog, Matt, would be called GOVERNMODO, and it would be like debate live-blogging all the time, except you’d do it to everything on C-SPAN.

It’d be like a public service!

Or maybe KRITIKI, the blog that critiques the press critics…

Matt says…

Is this a service we could provide the Internet? An automatic Denton blog name generator? ‘Cause clearly mine would be Gayblaqa.

Matt says…

Yours could be maybe umm … Dhakifu? Michsacto?

Robin says…
