What’s a placeblog?

I love that “random acts of journalism” part. Doesn’t that describe Mainstream Media as well?

Placeblogger is a new site brought to you by the luminaries of citizen journalism: Lisa Williams, Jay Rosen, and Dan Gillmor.

Looks like listings are open to the public.

Read the rest of the “What a…?” page. It’s a great description of what this type of blog is about. With the new municipal wireless system coming to Minneapolis, I hope we will see more ‘placeblogs’ and maybe even some neighborhood projects to get them going.

MNSpeak, our own hyperlocal blogging device (or whatever), is listed at #9 in the realm of placeblogs.
