‘Sarah Palin’s Breast Implants Was Our Next Highest Story’

Nick Denton sent out a memo to his staff last night to discuss traffic performance at Gawker Media. “The audience at the end of June was some 38% up on a year earlier and many sites individually did better than that — even those supposedly mature sites like Gizmodo and Gawker — up 59% and 68% respectively — that some skeptics thought had maxed out in 2007 or earlier,” he wrote.

Good news for those at Gawker, including the COO, and our profile subject today, Gaby Darbyshire.
