On Lawrence.com, the blogs are more popular than the content created by the pros. This is the kind of site that the dailies keep talking about, but not creating: tons of information on local bands, mp3’s, venues, concerts, restaurants, bars, and … blogs! And it’s published by the Lawrence Journal-World.

Until last week, I only knew Lawrence, Kansas as the setting of the nuclear war TV movie The Day After. Then I saw Rob Curley present Lawrence.com at the New Media Conference at Berkeley and was impressed with the site. Lawrence is a college town with a thriving local music scene and Lawrence.com does a remarkable job of laying it all out.
