Blogging network Giga Omni Media, the company behind OM Malik’s GigaOM, has acquired a mobile-focused blog jkOnTheRun. According to OM Malik, James Kendrick and Kevin Tofel, founders of jkOnTheRun, will join GigaOM and will continue to write their posts, record their podcasts and shoot their videos.



OM Malik writes, “We were faced with the choice of either building out a blog that helped us track the mobile revolution more carefully (but with a consumer perspective) or buying one. It would have taken us a long time to build one — buying jkOnTheRun was a far better option.”



“I predict that this is just the beginning of the process that will accelerate over the next 12-18 months,” Michael Arrington writes on TechCrunch. “Larger blogs lacking the stomach for competition will sell to large media corporations. The more competitive large blogs who want to see this thing through will start to acquire the smaller ones and group by topic areas.”
