Federated Media loses Fark and Digg

True, I've not updated this site in five weeks. Apologies for that; life has interfered with Battelle Watch. Unlike Mr. Battelle, I've been forced to work for a living since his earlier Internet bubble schemes collapsed.

Today, there is good news for the online industry. Federated Media has lost Fark.com and is about to lose Digg.com. FM is supposed to sell ads, but it can't seem to sell ads for its two biggest clients.

The "Valley Wag" site has details, and also apparently has a new editor who calls the good Professor "passive aggressive."
