Hyperlocal News Roundup
by Matt McGee on Jun 6, 2010 in Industry
This is what happens when I skip a news roundup one weekend: 17 articles are listed below, probably way too many for anyone to bother with in a single setting. My bad. Still leaning toward doing these even more often than once a week since there’s so much more hyperlocal news/blog stuff being talked and written about these days.
In any case, please accept my apologies for the huge link list below and enjoy whatever it is you choose to read.
