Sign of the Times

Last week Boise Weekly made a bold decision to go global. We pay attention to what's happening in the rest of the world and we figure you do, too.

To bring you news from remote corners of the world, we subscribed to a burgeoning news service called GlobalPost.com, which debuted in January with 65 correspondents worldwide. Visit citydesk and you'll find a new sidebar titled "BW World News."

That was last week.

This week, that move made news in the New York Times.

More encouragingly, a third revenue stream has been growing, as the company has signed up a growing number of news outlets, including The Daily News and The Boise Weekly of Idaho, to carry its reports and have use of its correspondents.
