Okay ad revenue is there, but the content on a local basis isn’t. Of course. They started with the traditional online news sources. Okay, then look at bloggers. And the point is there … bloggers don’t usually cover real local news (I don’t go to the local RCMP station to see when Pender’s been up to lately … heck I don’t even write about much at all).
So as a little test, I decided to check Victoria, BC (since I’ll be moving there soon)…you know it’s pretty good. I’m going to have to look at this more. This could really change how we consume news. Okay Pender is kinda thin … not unexpected. There are only 2000 people there! But … they did get the news about our local cable co getting acquired.
This really is something to watch.
