Bloggers more popular than real journalists in Lawrence, Kansas

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.
