From now on, Texas Tribune — the internet startup headed by Evan Smith and financed by John Thornton and friends — goes in italics. That’s becauseÂ the online ventureÂ just became a print venture, buying the venerable Austin-based political newsletter owned by Ross Ramsey, who will become managing editor of the new venture.
OOPS: Forget that cute little thing about online becoming print. Ross reminds me that Texas Weekly has been online only since 2004. What’s embarrassing about that is I already knew it.
