Oops: Bay Citizen Forgets to Renew Domain Name
There are a lot of things on the mind of a news organization. Somewhere down the to-do list is something along the lines of “renew domain name.”
Somehow, the Bay Citizen, a non-profit New York Times partner, forgot that one.
As Jim Romenesko reports, this is the least of the organization’s troubles:
The unexpected death of [investor Warren] Hellman [in December] left The Bay Citizen without its founder and benefactor. In September, the news organization’s founding editor-in-chief, Jonathan Weber, resigned abruptly. In October, the founding chief executive, Lisa Frazier, announced that she would resign in early 2012 for health reasons. Last week, the interim editor-in-chief, Steve Fainaru, a former Pulitzer prize-winning investigative reporter for The Washington Post, announced that he was resigning to pursue a book project.
