George Blake Goes Digital

George Blake, the former editor of the Cincinnati Enquirer and Fort Myers News-Press, has been busy since leaving the newspaper business. Blake was with the Enquirer for 20 years, and since moving on, he founded Pridatco, a company that owns two Internet privacy sites.

Blake’s sites — DoNotTrackUS and MoneyForMyData — are both free and offer users a better way to browse the Internet. DoNotTrack offers a service to remove online tracking data, while MoneyForMyData gathers users’ browsing info and allows the user to sell that data to advertisers.

Despite his foray into the digital realm, Blake remains a newspaper man at hear, as he forecasted positive things for the industry to Bill Lucey’s Newspaper Alum:

I assume newspapers will reach a point at which news staffing is stable and editors may allocate personnel in a manner that allows the best coverage within those limits. It won’t ever go back to the pre-internet days, but coverage still will be meaningful.
