This probably won’t matter to most readers here on the blog, but my role at the Mercury News has changed, as of today. I’ve moved from being the paper’s Internet reporter to a non-writing job involving online strategy for the Merc’s web site. Elise Ackerman is the new Internet reporter. I’ll continue to blog here, so if you’re a company, PR person or tipster with info about a new company, interesting technology or other news in the tech space, I’m (still) all ears. – Mike
