Localfeeds is still down. That’s not exactly breaking news; it’s been down since February. I was really starting to enjoy Localfeeds–it did a great job of showing me what other people in Seattle were talking about. Sooner or later it’ll pop back to life, so NetNewsWire keeps polling it every hour, hoping for something to turn up.

The thing that amazes me is that no one else has jumped in and implemented this themselves. The basic data is all available; it’s just a matter of database coding. And a lot of bandwidth. Still, there has to be a way to make money at this, and I’m amazed that no one has stepped into the void.
