Hyperlocal political blogging
: Said it before, I’ll say it again: Hyperlocal political blogging is where it’s at (or will be). Here’s a story about it in Fairfax County, VA. Says one of the local bloggers:
Although her posts deal mostly with Fairfax County politics, Marshall said she received an e-mail from somebody in Arizona asking for a post on voter registration. She said she hopes “people in other parts of the country will read my blog and say, ‘You know, we could do that,'” creating a nationwide network of blogs devoted to local politics.
“The Internet really is like the Guttenberg press,” she said. “It is going to change human society as profoundly as the Gutenberg press but nobody knows how.”
