TechFlash Founders Leave to Launch GeekWire

 
 

Technology reporters Todd Bishop and John Cook have departed TechFlash, the company they founded, and unveiled a new enterprise, GeekWire.

Touting itself as an “independent technology news source,” GeekWire will cover technology news in the Pacific Northwest.  In a video posted to their new site, Cook and Bishop said hearing the stories of local entrepreneurs inspired them to take the plunge.

The new site will provide insights into technology news based on “old-fashioned reporting.” Cook and Bishop stressed the site’s design was preliminary and will continue to evolve in the coming months.

Two of the premiere technology reporters in the Pacific Northwest, Cook and Bishop founded TechFlash two and a half years ago. The site is part of the Puget Sound Business Journal.

With the departure of Cook and Bishop, reporters from the Puget Sound Business Journal will contribute to TechFlash as the company looks for a new editorial board.
