Examiner.com takes on the world (and Austin, Texas)

Wonder what the implosion of daily newspapers means for local news coverage? Well, one hint of what's to come is Examiner.com, which bills itself as the "Insider source for everything local." Already covering more than 90 cities around the U.S., Examiner.com is a perfect example of how citizen journalism could easily replace the top-down journalism model we're all familiar with.

My friend Jessica Schneider works for the Examiner.com as their Austin Cultural Events Examiner. Anyone from that part of Texas looking for unique and different things to do should check out her page. If you know of any Austin-area events and shindigs you want to spread the word about, simply drop her a line.
