Michael Silence has hopes that hyper-local blogging will come to Knoxville in 2009. I happen to believe that it is one of the most underestimated and potentially fruitful niches of online communication available. Media outlets and their blogs tend to ignore neighborhood issues. That leaves more room for hyper-local bloggers who are more than embedded in their subject.
