Desipundit shuts down

The link blog to the 'best of the Indian blogosphere', Desipundit announced that it is shutting down. Two of the contributors, Neha and Ash explain why.

If lack of time for the contributors is the main reason I think there is a way that it could be changed.

A model which is more like digg.com. Where everyone could be contributors and the present contributors could become hawk-eyed editors looking out for spam? Yes, I thought the idea of Recruiting.com could be moulded for DP

If not, then could someone else buy DP. I'm thinking some of the big media houses like NDTV, web18 or others.

Of course, this would change the basic nature of DP, but something's better than nothing !
