Is Gawker Turning Into Reddit? [Headlines]
Gawker Media founder Nick Denton maintains that his company is a tech company, rather than editorial.
At the first-ever company-wide meeting of Gawker Media, founder Nick Denton said his network of blogs “is to be considered a tech company – but it should also be considered a tech company with editorial products,” Choire Sicha reported for The Awl.
Although such statements don't change anything about the company itself – tech companies are worth more than editorial companies, so it could be as simple as that – the notion appears to center around a soon-to-be-implemented commenter system.
