Well, I'm not a SJ area resident, but I read the Mercury online a fair 
amount. It's tech coverage is superb, the best of any paper in my 
opinion. I am also a big Dan Gilmore fan. Dans residence at the paper 
provides quite the libertarian slant to some of the coverage, but I 
appreciate that.

Presuming that you are being interviewed in a tech related area, I'd the 
the Mercury is a great paper to get interviewed by.
