Metblogs in SF Weekly

In SF Weekly’s online Snitch blog today, a piece about Metroblogging, with quotes from co-founder Jason (mostly) and me (once).

Writer Tyler Callister emphasizes how the city-focused blogs in the world-wide network respond to local crises. In addition to the Pakistan cities Islamabad, Karachi and Lahore which have reported on that country’s recent upheaval, last year the Bangkok metblog reported on the Thai military coup; when bombers hit the Indian city of Hyderabad earlier this year, they were on it, as were Bangalore metrobloggers when riots struck the city in April 2006.
