But worth giving a try, to see if very local writers/bloggers/whateverists can practice good journalism at a local level. Prof. Robert Washburn puts out a challenge, let’s try to see if it works:
Over the next few months, the J-Source Innovation section will seek to provide information about hyperlocal journalism, post resources and stimulate discussion. As well, you can follow @jsourceinnovate on Twitter for more up to the minute ideas, trends and news. We would also like to start an inventory of Canadian examples of hyperlocal journalism. If you are aware of a hyperlocal journalism project, send us the link. Let us know what you would like; what you think; and what is possible.
