I’m not a big fan of buzzwords, and “hyperlocal” is one of those words that has been floating around the newspaper business for a while.
I’m orginally from Fairfield County, Connecticut, so I was thrilled to fnd out about WestportNow, a hyperlocal (there’s that word again) site that covers Westport, and in large part by the citizens themselves.
One of the most endearing sections of the site is for the lost and found pets. Check out the one-eyed dog that had been reunited with its family.
