I can't help but think this has something to do with these "rockstar bloggers" valuing quantity over quality. Once you've deluded yourself into believing you need to write three blog posts a day in order to stay relevant and increase your "influence", it all goes downhill…

Loved this post, Sean. A question on bounce rates, though... I was under the impression that time spent on the page also factored into the bounce rate calculation. So, for instance, if someone visited only one page on your site but spent 3 minutes there, that may *not* be counted as a bounce. Is that the case?

I'm really impressed with the new design. This breaks the trend of large blog networks moving in a direction of increasingly reader-offensive designs. TechCrunch is one of the worst offenders. Over time, it's gotten increasingly difficult to differentiate sponsored content from ads from actual *content*. Not to mention the fact that it's absolutely littered with every social widget under the sun. In contrast, the new Gawker layouts are clean and content-focused. They also demonstrate a keen understanding of how touch screen devices are changing the way we interact with web content. The sidebar seems perfectly suited to tablet devices, all the while not feeling out of place with a mouse and keyboard.

Arg! That's terrible news. I was looking forward to riding it within the next few weeks. :(
