Is the Gigaom shutdown a harbinger of what’s to come for tech media outlets? Manny and Jim brought in March Communications CEO Martin Jones, who just celebrated March’s 10-year anniversary, to discuss what led to Gigaom’s downfall, consumers’ evolving expectations for media outlets and the declining influence of the “gatekeeper” in journalism.

Leading into our conversation with Martin, we tried the Meerkat app for the first time, with mixed results, to say the least. We also chatted about Facebook’s “Faustian” plot to become the go-to platform for all media outlets.
