Bishop, Cook bail on the P-I

The P-I’s Microsoft blogger Todd Bishop and tech reporter John Cook quit unexpectedly yesterday, heading for a new role at the Puget Sound Business Journal.

Yes, there’s a Puget Sound Business Journal.

And apparently, they’re trying to do a Northwest-oriented tech news site.

I’m kinda wondering why, though. They both had a great platform over with the P-I. And if “newspapers are dead,” why jump to another newspaper? Maybe they have more freedom (and deeper pockets) at the PSBJ, but do we really need a regional TechCrunch? For that matter, do we need another tech hype machine like TechCrunch has become?
