YourStreet, My Street

From TechCrunch:

What do you get when you combine Google Maps with hyper-local news and comments? You get a map-based news site called YourStreet....

Here's how it works:

YourStreet scans thousands of newspaper sites and local blogs each day to bring you the most comprehensive local news available anywhere. Our algorithm interprets the articles, identifies specific locations in the text, and plots them on an interactive map....

You can get involved in lots of ways:

Comment on an article
Start or add to a local conversation
Create a user profile to let your neighbors know who you are

Their news for Ontario, California is here.

If you have a locally-based blog, you can add it. (I guess I could start a locally-based blog for the Everest base camp.)
