In the past few months, I've been following a number of Stamford blogs. I think it points to something that will help today's society - hyperlocalism.
In today's era of global corporations, walmartism and big media, we're loosing the focus on localism and unique places, people and ideas.
It's also a time when you don't know your neighbor, many are afraid and shut-in, and others don't have any compassion or understanding for others.
I think blogs and other hyperlocal communication might help with this. Hopefully some sense of connection can start online and might even someday spill over to real personal relationship - new friends and new ideas.
