Steve Outing at Editor & Publisher has an essential piece on the trend of "hyper-local" news. He highlights a project we’ve mentioned before called Outside.in – a recent project by early internet innovator Stephen Johnson:
In a nutshell, Outside.in seeks to bring together and finely categorize news and information from all sorts of sources online, down to the neighborhood level. It’s seeking to become the place you’ll go to zero in on your neighborhood and find everything that’s being written or produced about it — as well as recruit original content about your neighborhood in a social networking experiment.
