Gigaom is getting another shot. Knowingly Corp, an Austin-based startup, has purchased the tech site that suddenly shuttered in March, and plans to relaunch it August 15.
Gigaom was founded in 2006 by Om Malik. It was shut down in March because it didn’t make any money. In a post at the time, the site’s editors put it a little more politely by stating that Gigaom “became unable to pay its creditors in full.”
Knowingly was founded last year by Byron Reese. In an announcement, Reese said he was “excited to be a chapter of the Gigaom story.” Here’s hoping the new book has a happier ending.
