    Why did you buy DN? :)

      Piggybacking off this question, what do you plan on doing with DN?

      or, for how much price did you buy DN?

        I can't share the exact number, but it was actually quite expensive compared to how much revenue it was bringing in. I was confident that we could find some great sponsors and grow the job board, so I took a punt.

      My Medium post lays it out pretty clearly. I was a longtime reader and have always thought DN had a ton of potential. When I heard about LayerVault going under, I jumped on it.

      I've hired a great little team ( Jody, Max, and Farzad) and we're focused on growing the community, improving the quality of the content, and generally making the site better in whatever ways we can. So far I'd say it's going pretty well. Would love to hear everyone's take.

      ...but mostly because I saw a great opportunity to turn into a link-bait content mill and sell everyone's emails to spammers ;-)
