Nick Denton Thinks About Things

A hot rumor currently circulating is that Nick Denton (Gawker’s founder) and Henry Blodgett (Business Insider’s founder) will merge their sites into what we can only imagine would be an endless stream of snarky and/or sanctimonious slideshows. However, according to Denton, there’s nothing to the rumor; he has merely thought about it.

When Gigaom asked Denton if there was any truth to the merger, Denton replied, “No. I told Henry to get in touch if they ever decide to sell. I’m a fan of their editorial management. That’s about it.” Gigaom pressed anyway, asking if BI was going to sell — which they’re not, as far as anyone knows — would he consider buying? “Yes,” replied Denton, via IM.

So there you have it. Denton has thought about something, and might think about something again. Media news!
