Seattle PostGlobe Springs From Seattle PI’s Ashes

Filed as News on April 16, 2009 5:53 pm

I love this story, it is so incredibly “publishing 2.0″ and “blogosphere spirit” to me. A bunch of laid off journalists from Seattle Post-Intelligencer, a now online-online publication, have started a non-profit online news site called Seattle PostGlobe. This from the Seattle Times story: has little money — about $3,000, with another $3,000 pledged. “We’re working as volunteers now,” Murakami said.

The site expects to rely to a great extent on reader donations. Murakami said the goal is to get 8,000 people to pledge $10 a month to help pay full-time, part-time or freelance staff.

Ads will also help, of course.

As you can see, Seattle PostGlobe is a pretty straight-forward, bloggish and everything. Just the way we like it.
