I find it gratifying when friends and family do well, which brings to mind my friend David Markland, a contributor at Metblogs. David and I met for the first time at the Media Bistro party last year, and I still remember his first words to me “I’m sorry Edward, I’m going to put you and your newspaper out of business”.
He wasn’t kidding if you take a look at a newspaper near you, and the migration most newspaper companies are taking towards the Internet.
David holds a special place in my heart, as he was one of the many unsung hero’s that helped with the party after we buried my son Bryan last August, for this he will always gain my attention and admiration.
KNBC has launched a new (pardon the vernacular Mark Cuban) blog, titled California Faultline, which David operates, drop by and I’m certain you will enjoy his writing style.
