Media Circus, July 29: The Year in Hyperlocal

Just over a year ago, Gelf hosted a contentious and illuminating discussion about the business of hyperlocal. (Video of the panel discussion is available here.) Now, last year's nascent offerings have become this year's major players, and the hyperlocal space has been characterized by a rash of investments, if not profits.

Join Gelf for a frank discussion of the pitfalls and prospects of hyperlocal featuring Mark Potts, a hyperlocal pioneer and CEO of Growthspur (interview here) and Jake Dobkin, publisher of Gothamist and well-known rabble-rouser (an interview from Dobkin's last appearance available here), as we once again view the past and future growth of the field through the eyes of the people who are driving it.

The event will be held Thursday, July 29, at 7:30 pm (doors at 7:00 pm) at the JLA Studios gallery at 63 Pearl St. in the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn--just one subway stop away from Manhattan. Admission is FREE. Drinks will be available.
