Some interesting "alternative" news and information sources popping up on Long Island.
One is from AmericanTowns.com and the other is from a subdivision of AOL called Patch.
Both appear to be anticipating the "dissolution" or at least the marginalization of long standing media here on Long Island (as elsewhere) and are attempting to position themselves to reap the rewards.
Both sites are worth checking out.
I will be attempting to incorporate sources of this type with others in my role with the Long Island Regional Planning Council to promote the type of "meta information" concepts I've written about previously here on this site.
