Some of you will remember that my first online endeavor was to launch an online news site in eastern San Diego County called East County Online. That was in 1995.
Some time ago I did a tweet suggesting that somebody should start an online site that told the story of a local community not with the written word, but almost entirely with photos.
I thought it would be an interesting experiment.
I doubt whomever started EastCountyNews.net knows anything about me or ever saw that tweet, but it is, in fact, a community news photo site. And the publishers took it a step further. it’s also in print.
That’s pretty cool.
