At the time, Jarvis told the Observer that he thought "Ann Arbor can be a model for the wired city"--a prospect he found "very exciting." In a September email, the consultant said he remains proud of AnnArbor. com's role in digital communications and community engagement. "Yes, I'm disappointed it is no longer a stand-alone enterprise. Though I'm not privy to the decision-making process at MLive.com, I of course understand their desire to consolidate brands and operations. But I will still point to AnnArbor. com as a model in having the courage to drive to the future rather than merely protecting the past."

That future, though, now will look much more like the past. MLive is seventeen years old, and the News, through its predecessors, dates back to 1835.    (end of article)
