Unless you know something we don't, linux.com is not "demised". According to their announcement on 1 Jan, it appears they are merging with or being bought out by someone. (For "legal reasons" they can't detail things right now.) I imagine they will emerge with a different paradigm. As I recall sometime in 2008, the parent company changed its name to SoureForge and asserted its ownership over linux.com and other assets.
If you hear something before we do, please let us know.
