Valleywag is being shut down. Paul is leaving; Owen will write for Gawker.
I've never met Denton, but to me he seems like the ultimate pessimist. He didn't sell Gawker during the froth, and he'll be damned if his little cashflow machine won't help continue paying his bills and making micro celebs (and making freelance writers have things to write about in NY Mag.)

I think the bigger news is that The Consumerist, probably the most helpful blog in Gawker Media, is up for sale.
