Not long after Gapers Block was founded, Blogging.LA co-founders Sean Bonner and (former Chicagoan) Jason DeFillippo launched the cityblog network Metblogs. It looked this past weekend like the network might shut down at the end of the month, but an eleventh-hour salvation may just come through. If that's the case, does that mean Chicago.Metblogs will return from the dead?
