Newwest…or near those parts, you have to go say hello to my pal Jonathan Weber, who was my Editor and partner at the Standard, and is one of the overall great folks in journalism. Last week he closed a series A financing for his wonderful regional blog/publishing company New West, and I’m thrilled that both he and I are still at it, even after fate (and a lot of other things) forced us apart five years ago. Congrats, Jonathan and the New West team! (caveat, I am an informal advisor for Jonathan’s biz….)
