Dynamic Web Project Idea – Hyperlocal News

My idea is to build a site that amalgamates local news by sourcing tweets, Foursquare check-ins, and news articles. These items would be grouped by neighborhood. Users could search by neighborhood or contribute via text message, tweets or posts. Users could contribute photos and videos as well. All of the information collected would pertain to specific locations, and could possibly be visually displayed on a map. This project will probably utilize all or most of what we are learning in Dynamic Web class.
