Sorry, Tech Blog AllThingsD Shuts Down

With nearly 40,000 posts and millions of loyal readers the site will go down tomorow January 2.

At that time, DOW Jones also said it will do a major global expansion of its technology coverage, by adding adding 20 reviewers, bloggers, visual journalists, editors, and reporters covering digital and expand its conference franchise to include an international technology conference and building a new digital home for our first-class technology news and product reviews on The Wall Street Journal Digital Network.

However, this is not the end of our beloved AllThingsD.

The two said they have an all-new site and suite of conferences, with a different name and Web address, run as an independent company with great investors and partners. Dubbed Re/Code, the new web address aims to present a fusion of new-media timeliness and energy with old-media standards for quality and ethics just as AllThingsD.

This guys managed to bring together Apple’s Steve Jobs and Microsoft’s Bill Gates just a month after their site’s launch and we hope they will even do better.
