NAA 20 Under 40–Congrats Dan Pacheco

Bakotopia’s developer, Dan Pacheco, just got honored as one of the NewspaperAssociation’s 20 Under 40.
Quote to note: “…I’m amazed at how much I’ve been allowed to accomplish through a small family-owned newspaper company like the Californian. I’’m allowed to work much faster than I ever could at gargantuans like The Washington Post and America Online…One of the many reasons I chose to work where I do is because I absolutely could not believe what I was hearing about what the ‘“indie’ Californian was doing. Here I was at America Online, with a job many people work their whole careers to get to, and people in Bakersfield with far less money and resources were pulling off stuff that I’’d been trying to push through for six years.”

    I work with Dan and at The Californian and can vouch for the work environment. It’s not your father’s newspaper, that’s for sure.

  2. Dan Pacheco says:

    Thanks for the mention, Susan. This unexpected NAA award is a true honor, not just for me but for The Bakersfield Californian — which I hope I made clear in my lengthy interview. And thanks Logan for the nice comment. I wholeheartedly agree!
