"With Rachel Sterne of Ground Report I co-chaired a meeting of folk interested in hyperlocal media in the UK. The meeting was at the Department of Culture Media and Sport at the request of Sion Simon MP the UK Culture Minister in advance of the digital britain bill. I shall post more on the discussion when i have had time to reflect. But to make the meeting as transparent as possible here is some of the core information.
The meeting had the Twitter hashtag #cabinet and there is a Tweetdoc. The group was informed by Rachel Sterne’s slides dissecting the hyperlocal market and Douglas McCabe’s statistics from Enders. Three good posts have already emerged; from Hannah Waldram at Podnosh including attendees and two from Paul Bradshaw"
