A recent New York Times article reports on a number of start ups that are geotagging news stories in communities normally underrepresented in major papers. EveryBlock, Outside.in (co-founded by PSFK Conference speaker John Geraci), PlaceBlogger and Patch are each bringing together various news sources to compile a site dedicated to your community or even specific city block.
