Gigaom is a blog-related media company started by Om Malik in San Francisco, California.[1] The blog offers news, analysis, and opinions on startups, emerging technologies, and other technology related topics. It is listed on CNet's Blog 100 list.[2]

History[edit]

Gigaom originally integrated a number of other technology-related blogs and services into its network. In 2011, Gigaom consolidate this network of blogs and rebranded all as separate topic channels on gigaom.com. Gigaom now has channels dedicated to technology news, Apple, cleantech, cloud, data, Europe, mobile, and video.[citation needed]

In June 2006, Malik left his day job to work on Gigaom full-time.[3]

Since 2006, Gigaom has organized technology conferences under the banner Gigaom Events.[4] The events division now produces six events annually: Gigaom RoadMap, paidContent Live, Mobilize, and the Structure series (Structure, Structure:Data and Structure:Europe).[5]

In 2008, Malik appointed Paul Walborsky as CEO of the company [6] and in 2009, the company launched GigaOM Pro, a subscription-based technology research service. [7]

On February 8, 2012, Gigaom acquired PaidContent through the acquisition of ContentNext Media. [8]

In 2012 the company reported having a monthly global audience of 5.5 million.[1]
