Although The New York Times decided to not endorse anyone in the democratic gubernatorial primary yesterday, the paper has endorsed her running mate, Tim Wu, for lieutenant governor. A professor at Columbia Law School, Mr. Wu is credited with coining the phrase “net neutrality,” has written for numerous publications and was profiled by the Observer way back in 2006. He is also popular with “tech and new-media types—the sort of people who know what 4chan and Laughing Squid and Digg are,” according to a New Yorker story about a recent fundraiser for the candidate.
