Citizen Journalism - what happened to YourHub

A decent retrospective and analysis by Tom Grubisich in Street Fight Daily of what has happened to Denver's pioneering YourHub concept that once was spreading nationwide.

I'm beginning to seriously wonder whether any existing media company can truly pull off hyperlocal, even with things like TribLocal in Chicago.

Meanwhile, here in Columbia, The State is killing off its Neighbors section in print. Not clear yet if it will beef up its online efforts or if it's just throwing in the towel now that Patch is on the ground in some areas.

I firmly believe that there are market for a wide range of journalism styles and forms. However you have made a very good explanation about some doubts that of course are reasonable. I just can see that the future of journalism should be a neverending story in democratic society.
