Maki, writer of Dosh Dosh, is currently a Philosophy student in Toronto, Canada.
As a new member of the Portland micro-media community, I’ve been intently researching local online resources to see if there might be an opportunity to develop something new and useful.
Some of the best hyperlocal sites in Portland include PDX Pipeline and Dave Knows: Portland, two blogs that truly have a finger on the beat.
Blogtown by The Portland Mercury, WWire by Willamette Week and The Oregonian all run respectable hyperlocal sites.
Then there are sites that put the hyper in hyperlocal, like Portland Hamburgers and Portland Beer.
