Chi-Town Update

Posted on | August 29, 2006 | No Comments

Geoff Dougherty, editor of one of the country’s leading citizen journalism sites, the Chi-Town Daily News, is making good on something he told me earlier this summer: a network of neighborhood reporters. He’s already got a robust photo feature displayed off the home page every day, like the photo rendered here. But the neighborhood reporting initiative is now graphical. It’s probably not ideal yet, and he’s relying on some solid stringers out of Northwestern’s Medill School of Journalism, but it’s a start. Check out the Google map feature on the right side of Chi-Town’s home page. I’m a graphical kinda guy so I think this is a simple but elegant way to organize the news.
