Media Circus, June 11: The Business of Hyperlocal

Media Circus returns to Brooklyn on June 11 with a night dedicated to The Business of Hyplerocal. The dream of targeted online journalism—a newspaper tailored just for you!—is finally being realized, but is it sustainable? Gelf's monthly speaking series on all things media will examine hyperlocal by hearing from the people driving it.

Mark Josephson, CEO of the hyperlocal start-up Outside.In (interview here), will be joined by Andy Newman, the Brooklyn-based blogger for the New York Times's The Local (interview here), and Jake Dobkin, publisher of Gothamist (interview here). The work of local artists will be on display, as well.

The event will be held Thursday, June 11, at 7:30 pm (doors open at 7:00 pm) at the JLA Studios art gallery on 63 Pearl St. in the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn—just one subway stop away from Manhattan! Admission is FREE. Drinks will be available. Please spread the word and bring your friends.
