Gawker Media overlord Nick Denton on the company’s shakeup [via a New York Times article to be published Monday]:

“We are becoming a lot more like a traditional media company,” Mr. Denton said last week. “You launch a site, you have great hopes for it and it does not grow as much as you wanted. You have to have the discipline to recognize what isn’t working and put your money and efforts into those sites that are.”
