People are not going to put up with page-load waits similar to what we had to go through back in the 14400 modem days.

A sell off could very well be in the works though, and that’s a good thing for the industry as a whole. Gawker has shown the old guard media what direction media needs to be going, and how to make money doing it – though it’s probably a lot less money for now.

It is debatable though – there may not be less money there, just less money for one organization. Less consolidation, more niche content.
