We have always believed that there is a need for a platform that intelligently aggregates local media, organizes it by city, town, and neighborhood and allows it to easily be distributed across the web.
And we believe that now is the perfect time for a new model to emerge for local media.
So this is content plus tools that allow editors and others to “curate” the stories available to publishers from Outside.in.
- Customized Neighborhood News Pages for every neighborhood in your market.
- Rich, interactive maps, headlines, and excerpts.
- Access to aggregated stories from all local blogs, news sites, and other sources—including Twitter!
- Tools to curate the stories, sources, and tags that will appear on your site.
With these kinds of syndication and publisher facing tools the site is starting to hit its stride. There’s also an ad network model lurking in here.
