Investing in local

I’m delighted to see CNN investing in – and in local and in the notion of distributed, scalable networks of content. AOL, Yahoo, MSNBC, NBC, ABC, and other big guys are investing in local. But local doesn’t need big guys to succeed and is the proof: it is a curation of lots of independent local ventures that do what they do because they can and want to. I have immense respect for’s management, Steven Johnson and Mark Josephson and I’m delighted to see an endorsement of and support of their vision.
