The Placeblogger site puts social content in a geographic and chronological context allowing easy aggregation of blogs about anyplace. By geo-locating blogs and other content, readers can easily explore any place ... somewhere you are now - or somewhere you were, or a place you might be soon.
Knight Foundation 2007 News Challenge grant winner Lisa Williams came to international Drupal web agency Raincity Studios to help build the vision she described as, "To make it easier for people to find hyper-local news and information about their city or neighborhood through promotion of “universal geotagging” in blogs."
Bloggers add their feed url, along with information about where in the world they are blogging from (or about). Using geo-location, blogs are grouped by area, and gathered with geo-tragged Flickr photos, Wikipedia information and Google maps, for easy subscription. So, readers interested in a specific locale can quickly see all blogs from a region on a personal Placeblogger aggregator page.
Locals can stay up on hyper-regional news and views, ex-pats might follow their hometowns, while travelers can discover advance information on destinations. While on the go, readers and bloggers can easily temporarily attach/detach to a city to coordinate with a travel itinerary. I.e. blogging from Seattle on Monday, reading blogs, in NYC on Wednesday, and reading and writing Prague blogs on Friday.
Participants can also add friends, follow buddies' content, add fave places, denote fave placeblogs posts, or and other feed items, for easy customization based on where you are.
