Why now is a good time to go hyperlocal  —  We are experiencing something of a hyperlocal renaissance right now.  The Long Island daily Newsday is on a hiring binge, looking for thirty-four hyperlocal beat reporters.  If by the second half of last year the hyperlocal space was heating up …
Katie Roiphe / New York Times:
The Language of Fakebook  —  I HAVE a feeling that if Andy Warhol were alive he would be spending the summer writing a novel that takes place in real time on Facebook.  In that spirit, Lauren Mechling and Laura Moser have been writing a clever serialized novel on Slate called “My Darklyng.”

Fair Use: Okay, Let's Talk About It  —  It is a pet peeve of mine when people throw around arguments citing “Fair Use” and yet fail to actually explain what a fair use argument actually is.  So it was mostly for that reason that I was annoyed by Jeff Bercovici's misleading, poorly-reasoned post yesterday on AOL's Daily Finance.
