Gawker redesigns three sites; more to come?

Gawker redesigns three of its sites, stripping out Twitter and Stumble Upon leaving only Facebook. The new designs for io9, Gawker TV, and Jalopnik go"beyond the blog," as Gawker says. On io9, Annalee Newitz says: "If you've stopped by io9 before, you'll notice that the front page looks quite a bit different today. We've got one big story that takes up most of the page, and a list of today's headlines in a column down the right side of the page. The page is a lot simpler and lighter, which means it will load quickly. And at last we have a way to display big, gorgeous images and videos on the front page of our site. That's the point."
More experimentation from one of the Net's more adventurous companies.
