Seattle P-I to Publish Last Edition Tuesday

Posted in Technology News on March 18th, 2009 by admin – Be the first to comment

The Hearst Corp. announced Monday that it would stop publishing the 146-year old newspaper, Seattle’s oldest business, and cease delivery to more than 117,600 weekday readers.

The company, however, said it would maintain seattlepi.com, making it the nation’s largest daily newspaper to shift to an entirely digital news product.

“Tonight we’ll be putting the paper to bed for the last time,” Editor and Publisher Roger Oglesby told a silent newsroom Monday morning. “But the bloodline will live on.”

In a news release, Hearst CEO Frank Bennack Jr. said, “Our goal now is to turn seattlepi.com into the leading news and information portal in the region.”

Apes Art Inc.

Cheeky Monkey


We launched a new website for Apes Art Inc. For this website, we built a smart order form using jQuery, which allowed for some of functionality of a shopping cart (like saving data from previous page), but without the elaborate development and expense. It’s much smoother than older smart order form technology, and serves up less than 30 items quite nicely.

Also, Apes Art Inc is holding an event and you are invited. Here are the details:

A cheeky monkey would like to invite you to a fabulous party to celebrate the launching of a unique new Fine Art Corporation, with a mandate to help preserve endanged species. Bathe in the ambience of fantastic fine art by David Halliwell. Delicious canapes and wine will be served (bar service available).

Dress - optional - all are welcome.
