In a move guaranteed to make people say, “What? They hadn’t done that already?” the Washington Post and washingtonpost.com are getting ready to become- wait for it- the same damn company. According to the Washington Business Journal, the change will become effective on January 1, 2010.

Which means when I meet someone who works for the paper or for the website and make a remark about their work, they won’t say, “Oh, that’s the print guys. We don’t really work with them; we’re a separate company.” Which means I will no longer boggle insensibly at the folly of having two accounting departments, two IT departments, two HR departments, etc. No word on whether there will be any redundancy-related layoffs.
