    Anyone heard (kind of an old story already) that Gigaom.com (DA92, top 3K sites in the world) is dead for a week or so? https://gigaom.com/2015/03/09/about-gigaom/
    They were probably spending a LOT of money on fancy offices and salaries for their hipster bloggers

    Those tech hipster writers/editors all want to make $150k a year while blogging from their MacBook retina pro while they nap in pods and drink fancy coffee from the coffee bar in the office...inbetween playing ping pong...etc.

    They suck up so much VC money and spend like its water. It's easy...just throw the word "disruptive" into any VC pitch and they will hand you a blank check and you can create a pingpong office....I mean an online blog.

    TC editors won't accept a piece that doesn't have the word at least once.
