"The future of Local News is About More Than Just Paid content" is an article thinking about the future of "Newspapers" or community data sources/feeds on the Knight foundation sponsered "MediaShift Idea Lab" PBS website.

A newspaper is a product that, at least at its peak, provided about 50 different services for people. It helped people figure out where to shop. It delivered a boatload of coupons every Sunday. It helped them plan their weekend. It entertained them with comics and puzzles. It let them know what was on the school lunch menu. And along the way, it also delivered journalism.

Orlando Chamber - Friendly to Startups?

0 BookmarksLog in to bookmark

I was talking with Pete McAlindon, the creator of a product called the orbiTouch, and a Central Florida entreprener today, and he mentioned something interesting.

Orlando Chamber of Commerce

He says the Orlando Regional Chamber of Commerce wants to make itself more friendly to entrepreneurs and startups. I showed him our Florida Creatives YouNoodle group.

He also pointed to a really interesting site: Boulder.me - it's pretty neat, and it makes me want to check out Boulder for sure.
