Google Releases Bulletin, Hyperlocal News App for Citizen Journalists

Is Google the next big player in hyperlocal news?

I wondered what is hyperlocal news?

I looked and thought about what I found out.

Apparently one of my aunts was hyperlocal news reporter, an early pioneer of the craft. :roll:

When I was in grade school and went to stay with my cousins for a weekend everyone in the county would know all about it later that week, because they would read all about it in the newspaper.

One memory, I arrived at school one day to find the bullies lined up at the door waiting for me. Being asked and taunted with, "Oh lovey dovey is your ankle all better, want me to kiss it to make it better? Smooch Smooch HA HA HA."

Two times a week she'd send the paper in the big town, from her almost too small to think of as a town, something for them to print. That was hyperlocal news.

We learned it real young, DO NOT TELL HER ANYTHING!
