The idea for this came about in the lead up to #TAL12 in Birmingham in the weekend just gone. Inspired by the event, we registered the domain today and put this site up.
What’s it about? – Each of us doing Hyperlocal sites are, rightfully, focused on our own local areas. We thought a session at #TAL12 where those running independent hyperlocals highlighted stories that they’ve covered – ones that they were proud of and that helped the community – would give two benefits: A reminder to contributors of great work they’d done (often easy to forget) and generally encourage the hyperlocal scene.
