A new newspaper will be hitting the streets of San Francisco and Chicago on Tuesday (Jan. 27), one that will reprint blog posts surrounded by local ads sold to small businesses.
The founder and publisher of The Printed Bog is Joshua Karp (shown in his Chicago office), who previously founded a software company called Freerain Systems and sold it to ESM Solutions in 2007.
“We are trying to be the first daily newspaper comprised entirely of blogs and other user-generated content,” Karp told the New York Times [link]. In addition to the Times, Wired.com has written about this new venture [link].
