Bluffton, South Carolina Experiments with Virtual Community Center

Bluffton Today, a citizen’s media site launches, turning the newspaper model upside down – a open-virtual community center for Bluffton, South Carolina:

  • Everyone gets a blog. Not just staffers, but everyone in the community. LeMonde (France) and the Mail and Guardian (South Africa) are doing this, too. I don’t know of others but would appreciate pointers.
  • Everyone gets a photo gallery.
  • Everyone can contribute events to a shared public community calendar.
  • Everyone can contribute recipes to a community cookbook.
  • RSS feeds are everywhere.
