Denton: Less blogging, more tanning
We just got word that Valleywag has a new editor in Owen Thomas of Business 2.0. Thomas, a former online editor for Time Inc., currently edits 2.0‘s Beta blog and most importantly worked on beloved late ’90s site Suck.com. Valleywag has been edited by Gawker Media publisher Nick Denton since original editor Nick Douglas was fired (and later bought back as a correspondent) this past November.
In other Gawker-related news, the Huffington Post broke the news that GM is launching a science fiction blog that will be edited by a writer from Wired. No word yet on the identity of the writer, but Gawker editor Choire Sicha responded with a non-denial denial.
