Helping to build "the most innovative web sites"
Owned and operated by the "old media" outlet The Chicago Tribune, ChicagoNow drops traditional journalists and news reporting in favor of a large network of volunteer bloggers, all writing about the community, culture, politics, and everything else in the city of Chicago.
Investigate the network and you'll find evidence of the leading trend in the new web and mobile-based news networks: Local. The network cranks out 100 posts per day and thrives on comments and feedback from readers. Bloggers arrange in-person meet-ups at Windy City watering holes to further develop the community.
