The local Web, continued
Placeblogger brings together blogs based on their location. Personally, I really am looking forward to aggregators like this one taking off. Maybe they will change how we perceive the blogosphere (i.e. beyond terms of A-list bloggers and the Long Tail). I remember wishing there was some service like this in the aftermath of hurricane Katrina, as there were a number of first-hand witnesses to what was going on, but no way to find them if they had not been mentioned by more mainstream sources..
In any case, how long before Technorati catches on and starts doing location-specific searches? And Google? Or are they already nostalgic for a Web mapped by topic?
