Summer brings more growth, summer brings more life.
In the past few weeks, we’ve sounded the call for more contributors. And a host of filmmakers, writers, activists, and people just interested in getting involved in their community have stepped up to help.
Plenty of neighbors are making conscious choice about the media they consume, and choosing where they put their attention and effort. As more people come to this realization, we believe they return focus to their neighborhoods— the place where they can have the greatest impact.
There’s a lot of voices out there competing for your attention. There are lots of highly paid engineers working around the clock to keeping you in their app. Some weeks are busier than others, but I hope we can make this weekly round up an opportunity to filter out much of the media noise and check back in with your neighborhood.
Thanks for your time and attention… enjoy your weekend!
