Hate it or love it, Gawker was a force to be reckoned with during its 14-year run. It had enemies and friends on all sides of every issue which was unusual because of their stance on just about anything being worth its weight in tabloid gold.
So with it's demise coming next week, a lot of talk lately has been surrounding what to do with the Gawker archive and how exactly to save it. Even if you absolutely hate Gawker, as a journalistic piece of history, it's still worth saving to show others how we got to here.
I've been following this story closely and so far nobody has come forward with a way to archive the entire site. I hope that happens though before it goes dark.
