Going local: Metroblogging launches

LA writer/bloggers/entrepreneurs Sean Bonner and Jason deFilippo have launched metroblogging.com, a network of blog sites for major (and wired) cities. San Francisco, New York, and Chicago are up, with the promise of more to come. There’s a diverse amalgam of bloggers at each site, with a few familiar names, some fresh voices, and some raggedy posts as well.
The clever thing, of course, is that Bonner writes the (unofficial) Apple weblog for Jason Calcanis, who publishes numerous niche weblogs and places ads across them. Apple didn’t fall far from that tree, eh?
