If tech gadgets are in your holiday shopping plans, a good person to talk to is John Biggs, news editor at New York City-based Gizmodo.com.

With about 10 million page views in October, it is one of the Internet’s most popular gadget news and reviews sites.

“We cover the world of technology obsessively,” Biggs said, adding that the site’s four writers and two editors work from home and stay in touch with other via instant messaging.

Gizmodo produces about 30 stories per day.

“It reminds me of an old newsroom where we’re all yelling at each other, except it’s over IM.”
