The World Does Not Cease To Spin When Wealthy Web Blowhards Quit

…but the ripple effect on tech blogs can be great spectator sport. This morning Mr. Winer chimed in, too.
I’ve never been much of a Calacanis fan. I’ve also never been your basic Valleywag camp follower, although the redesign is good and Nick Denton is a much more substantive and less annoying/boring writer than the predecessor he canned. Nick Douglas was about as okay as you’d think a 22-year-old tech-industry-obsessed imitation of Ana Marie Cox might be, but he got, um, old fast.
As for Calacanis: however he tries to spin the numbers, pageviews for his retooled Netscape news portal went down 70% since he took over. That cuts through a lot of the noise.
