Local Web Wars

Jack Lail comments on the Golden Age of Web News:

The community will certainly win through more intense and competition-honed news coverage and some damn good local news Web sites.

For those of us on the outside looking in, this is the most encouraging result of competition.  The news organization that can bring us the one fact or caveat to a story that the other doesn’t will gain an advantage, if only for 20 minutes or so until they are trumped by the other guys.

Then again, no one is really completely on the “outside” anymore.  Now it’s more like we all have at least a right leg or left leg in the mix somewhere.  The blogosphere has made news coverage one big hokey-pokey.

“one big hokey-pokey” … I had never thought of news or the media/audience that way, but I love it.

Social media is a sort of dance, isn’t it?

Yep…and here I sit with two left feet.
