Lalawag, LA's Technology Gossip Blog, Shuts Site
Lalawag, the technology-meets-gossip blog run by Sean and Laurie Percival, is shutting down, according to a post from the two Thursday afternoon. According to the Percivals, they no longer have time to properly run the blog, due to a tough job and a new baby. The site had originally been conceived as a Los Angeles version of the popular Silicon Valley blog Valleywag--at least, according to Sean in conversations with socalTECH over the years--looking to cover the re-emerging Los Angeles technology scene. According to Sean and Laurie, the blog is being shut down "for the time being." Sean is currently VP of Online Marketing at MySpace, which he joined at the beginning of the year, and had previously been at Tsavo Media and Mahalo.
