I have been reading Fred Wilson’s blog religelously for the past few weeks. He is a VC at Union Square Ventures in New York and has invested in some of the coolest and most successful Web2.0 companies including Tacoda and Delicious. If you want to think hard about the good and valuable stuff going on, you should read this blog.
Today, I stumbled upon another great service (thanks Fred) — Outside.in. This site lets you find “hyper-local” news, so for me who lives in South Seattle (98118), I can find news, blog posts, info, related people, related locations specific blog… all focused on just my neighborhood. If I zoom out on the map, i get more neighborhoods included. Totally cool.
I test and play with lots of new sites and this one will make it into my daily rotation.
