Wired buys back HotWired and Webmonkey

By on

After a few days we reported that CondèNast bought Ars Technica, it has also bought back the defunct developer site Webmonkey and the original online magazine HotWired from Lycos USA, who bought the web components of Wired Magazine and sold Wired.com in 2006.

Webmonkey was closed by the previous owner of Lycos, Terra Networks, in 2004 and has been relaunched as a wiki.

HotWired has nothing publicly disclosed on its future.

The last property that was part of Wired before the breakup and not sold is HotBot, one of the early search engines and is still up.

Thanks for coming onboard!
We're excited to have you.
