Save Gawker

Gawker, the irreverent gossip blog cum media giant, wasn’t perfect. It was groundbreaking as a stand-alone digital media presence and every now and again, it actually said something important. Indeed, it broke a number of the stories that are now surfacing in other outlets as part of the #MeToo movement.

It also made it’s fair share of mistakes. But that doesn’t mean it deserved the fate that it received: sued out of existence by a billionaire holding a grudge. I’d like to see it live again, but at a minimum, it’s archives should be maintained. So today, I supported a Kickstarter campaign started by Gawker alumni to buy back the domain and its archives from bankruptcy auction.
