My friend Rob Curley just posted a thoughtful response to the WSJ story about his WaPo “flop” in hyperlocal publishing. As i said in early 2007, I’m definitely long Rob and can’t wait to see what he does in Vegas.
I’ve been pretty effusive in my praise of Rob Curley at WaPo so I was excited to see his latest project launch – a MicroHyperLocal portal called LoudonExtra. We’d talked about this a few times recently and Rob’s, who is usually a fast talker anyway, was bouncing off the walls.
Now that they have the framework in place expect to see a bunch more of these launched. Rob’s a growth stock – bet on him.
Rob gives some more details on his blog and a peek into their roadmap.
