Sad news from

I managed to miss the new hyperlocal news blog for the near peninsula in my last blog roundup, so I unfortunately have to introduce Metblogs readers to InMenlo with the news that its founder, Chris Gulker, passed away yesterday. The blog has been in business for a little over a year, and I’ve been following it for a month or two now. They are doing a great job of covering their two zip codes in Menlo Park and Atherton.

Gulker was apparently an interesting example of a serious, major-market, photojournalist who entered the world of newsblogging. After a long journalism career he had worked for years in the publishing divisions of Apple and Adobe, and was also known as a pioneering blogger for his personal blog, started in 1995.

San Jose Metblogs offers its condolences to the Gulker family, and hopes for InMenlo to continue its great work as Chris Gulker’s legacy.
