The Local Web

This morning I read Fred Wilson's post on outside.in and other efforts to make local content more prevalent on the web. I've since signed up to be able to contribute content to outside.in, and I'm looking forward to trying it out in the weeks to come.

My initial concern, at least in my zip code, is that there are a few blogs which seem to dominate the site. This is further problematic for me, because they are blogs to which I already subscribe, and hence I end up having a lot to skip or read twice. I suppose it will become a question of adjusting how/where I read certain information, but frankly that might be a bit too much to ask. Maybe, if more content starts to flow through these hyper-local sites this won't be such a concern.
