In case you missed it, Hulk Hogan won another $25m in Florida yesterday, $10m not from Gawker, but from Nick Denton himself. $50m of that needs to go in escrow now, so that it doesn't really matter if the verdict is turned over on appeal. Yet Gawker et.al remain outwardly unconcerned.

Paul Carr, snarker extraordinaire, argues that Denton's calmness comes from the fact that the keys to the Gawker kingdom now belong to a Russian oligarch with close ties to the Kremlin.
