Washington State newspapers move to Knight Ridder

Big news today in news. This positions Knight Ridder to control most of Washington State’s daily newspapers once they complete their eventual takeover of the Seattle Times and it’s smaller dailies. I certainly wouldn’t want to be publisher of The News Tribune or the King County Journal right now.

WiFi love

I’m midway across Puget Sound on a ferry heading to Bainbridge Island, checking my mail, downloading podcasts, and working on a network problem in Tacoma. God bless free WiFi.
