Is the Gigaom shutdown a harbinger of what's to come for some tech journalism? Manny and Jim brought in March Communications CEO Martin Jones to discuss what led to Gigaom's downfall, how consumer expectations for media have changed and why the influence of journalism "gatekeepers" has tailed off.

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