2 Seattle Journalists Crossing Over to Boeing

 Seattle P-I.com reports and Romenesko notes that the Post-Intelligencer's longtime aerospace reporter James Wallace - who was among those departing when the print edition folded - has gone over to the other side, working for Boeing, the company he once covered. He's becoming managing editor of Boeing's corporate magazine, where he'll likely be expected to be less critical, but he calls it "a perfect fit" nonetheless. Meanwhile, it turns out that a former Seattle Times aerospace writer is going over to the dark side as well: Chuck Taylor (right), who was also Seattle Weekly's managing editor and then the creative tech mind behind Crosscut.com, starts next month as a contract communications specialist for Boeing Integrated Defense Systems, the Lazy B's military/aerospace division. He'll be helping with the launch of a new Boeing website, he says. "It's the first time since college I have worked outside the news business," Taylor writes on his website - a lament that many respected journalists, caught up in the newspaper industry contraction, find themselves repeating today.
