It's the end of an era: DailyCandy will be shut down for good next week. According to our sister site, it was "one of the first to pilot local recommendation content in email form," and "evolved into a site shortly after it was purchased by Comcast media in 2008 for $125 million," but has slowly been crumbling against their competition. You won't even be able to access their archives—the entire site will be black to the public. [Racked]
