Last print edition of Seattle's grand P-I

THE Seattle Post-Intelligencer, announcing on Monday that it would become an Internet-only news outlet, published a thick commemorative issue tracing the history of Seattle's oldest newspaper as its final print edition, making it the largest American paper to shift entirely to the Web.

The last edition of the P-I began rolling off the presses shortly after 10pm on Monday.

The front page of the commemorative section featured a headline saying, "You've meant the world to us," and a photo of the 30-foot neon globe atop the P-I's building, which has a slogan rotating around the equator saying, "It's in the P-I."

The paper was to be delivered wrapped with 20 to 24 pages of photos and stories on the P-I's 146-year history.

The P-I lost US$14 million last year, and is hoping to shed enough expenses with a Web-only product to reverse that and start making money.
