One thing I am seeing more and more often is the local media totally turning thier backs on local news and information. The last local TV station in my town just dropped local news and laid off the entire news staff so they could squeeze in four more sit-com reruns a day. BLEECH! as Mad Magazine used to say.
I’m thinking about socially networking with some of the neighborhood folks and trying to develop a “10 square block micro-news service” where I change my web site to be an information gathering tool rather than an information dissemenation tool.
This way locals can email or form mail or blog local info and I can use the Read Please program to read the submitted items.
Anything from “The roads are being resurfaced next week” to “little Johnny got an ‘A’ in gym class!”
It’s gotta be better than what’s going on now!
Experimental broadcasting for a better tomorrow!
