Online Journalism Review has a story about localized weblogs
"People have long talked about how the Web is wonderful -- and how online communities are wonderful -- because you can find people of like minds and with similar interests regardless of where they are," [Heath] Row told me. "The Web can help us learn more about where we are -- and where we're going. It can also be used to add a layer of annotation to a physical location. That's what excites me the most."
Me too! Connecting with people all over the world is fun. But the Web is rarely used to connect with your physical neighbors. Ironically, as the Web becomes ubiquitous, making local connections is becoming more possible.
