All Things D closes, staff moves on to recode.net

8 posts in this topic

All Things D, the WSJ tech blog run by Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher, is closing down: 'You Say Goodbye and We Say Hello'

 

To most All Things D is known for its annual D conference, which brought us gems like Bill Gates and Steve Jobs being interviewed together at D5 (2007).

 

 

Mossberg and Swisher aren't going to rest however; midnight ET January 2nd their new site Re/code will open. We shall see whether the new site can gain as much traction as All Things D had.

WSJ didn't renew the contract, they'd rather have more in-house tech news.

Why?

They foresee a repercussion will happen at this year annual D conference if they don't move quickly to recode.

Tried it out by doing a search for "surface", got two hits both with nothing to do about MS Surface.  That, and the fact that the layout hurt my eyes, makes me doubt I will ever return to their site.

That doesn't seem like a good reason to close an entire site. It had name recognition, something that takes forever to build.
