Hyperlocal and the Social Universe

Had a very long and enjoyable meeting on hyperlocal news and social media today. We were joined by Josh Halliday from the rather impressive SR2Blog in Sunderland.

There is a huge amount written and spoken about hyperlocal news and how it should or shouldn’t be done but if you get a moment, you really should check out the SR2Blog site. Josh has built it from the ground up as a “labour of love” whilst studying for his journalism degree.

Young, talented, articulate and not afraid of a room full of suits, Josh is clearly going to end up having a major influence on the future of news consumption.
