I Will Miss ValleyWag.com
In its heyday, ValleyWag.com was the must-visit site for those benighted souls deeply interested in the flawed brilliance of Silicon Valley's enterepreneur class. From nothing, it built a dedicated viewership of some 1 million unique visitors per month, but that was not enough to sustain it, especially since it paid its writers a bounty for high-traffic posts that went viral. ValleyWag.com won't actually close down: it will be folded into Gawker.com but it will certainly lose much of its spice in the process. It's always a sad day when the Web loses an original voice.
