GigaOM halting operations

GigaOM halting operations due to lack of funds. Founder Om Malik, who’s not with the company anymore, published a short statement, where this is from:

There will be time for postmortems, but not today. Today, I want to thank all the people who make (and have helped make) Gigaom. Their role in this journey was what really made it all worth it. They are great people and they will all do great work wherever they go. I want to thank our investors who believed in the business long before it became fashionable. And most importantly, I want to thank you dear readers for coming along on this trip of a lifetime.

I briefly wrote for GigaOm back in the day. Sad to see it decline, and go. It used to be a force in the tech sphere. These days, not so much perhaps.

Thoughts? Let @tdh know on Twitter, or find me elsewhere. There is also a newsletter.
