News from home
: Todd Sweet, a reader, sends email telling the story of a weblog created for the Stryker Brigade in the Sunni Triangle in Iraq. Before they were deployed in the fall, Sweet posted stories on his personal blog. It grew so much, he started a blog just for the brigade. Says Sweet:
To me, this is what blogging is all about – providing useful, user-driven content and making connections. Those that visit are starved for news about, and pictures of, loved ones. The feedback in the comments has been incredible.
Yes, this is hyperlocal news. And this medium and network make it possible.
