The Future of Newspapers Arrives Online in Seattle

spg04.15.09.pngOn Tuesday, former staffers at the Seattle Post-Intelligencer launched Seattle Post-Globe, an online venture dedicated to keeping the news alive in the Pacific Northwest.

In a post explaining the effort, Kerry Murakami, a former reporter for the P-I, wrote:

At first, we’re doing this as volunteers. But what you’ll find on this Web site is a story much larger than ours.

As in Denver, where the journalists of the now-defunct Rocky Mountain News also are starting their own news site, we’re forging on because we believe newspaper-quality journalism needs to continue even as newspapers close.

We’re relying on you — the community — to keep us going.

Welcome to the new world of newspapers. Lead the way, friends.
