Austin’s newest hyperlocal project

Today, and by happenstance, two events converged, which seemed too coincidental not to notice.

Late this afternoon, Alexander Muse (@amuse) tweeted an interesting read about “hyperlocal”. To be honest, this was the first I had heard of it.

So, I checked out Fred Wilson’s blog post. According to Fred, hyperlocal “means we together will document what is going on in our streets, our schools, our churches, our parks, and our communities. No “newsroom centric” model is going to work. “ He continues to emphasize the importance of “peer produced” content.

After reading the post and the comments (of course!), thought no better time than the present to launch a project I’ve been involved in with Joey (@ludwigvan968) of ACTLab fame.

Just happens that – in a very small level – this project follows this hyper local theory.

Check out – AUSTIN 3.0

Check out www.austin30.org

We created the page for the following reason:

Need a place for the younger Austin geek scenesters to congregate

So check it out and tell us what you think!
