I was glad then when I was made aware of a a proposal to help active citizens create ultra or hyperlocal sites about their neighbourhood/community/locality.(thanks to Paul Bradshaw and Craig McGinty)
Check out the proposal Talk about local HERE
This is a brief synopsis
Talk About Local intends to train thousands of people who don’t have a voice to find a powerful online expression for their neighbourhoods, even if they can’t use the internet today. The project will create a legacy of independent community sites across the country, owned, mainstreamed and updated by ordinary local people as a volunteer effort.
