The New Gawker.

The Gawker family of a blogs got a long-anticipated facelift today. Conceived following the Gizmodo iPhone 4 debacle, the new template is based on the idea that the latest story is not always the most important story. What a great concept. Too bad they couldn’t execute it. Yet another in a lineage of horrendous Gawker designs.
