Metblog is coming to town

After successful launches in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco, Metroblogging is heading across the Atlantic and up the Thames to London.

Metroblogging is a collaborative blogging venture launched by Sean Bonner and Jason Defillippo and based on the successful formula used at The stated aim of each city-based metblog that comes online is to cover everything from ‘event listings to general rants, photos to reviews’ offering both local and remote readers a ‘hyper-local look at what’s going on in the city’ and where a ‘group of regional bloggers give each site a new perspective on daily life. Less calendar listing, more friendly advice’. Sean and Jason are seasoned veterans of online projects and are responsible for some of the more notable successes amongst the plethora of dot com disasters. European bloggers might be more familiar with some of the company these guys keep, like Chris Pirillo of LockerGnome fame and the actor-turned-blogger-turned-writer Wil Wheaton.

Why am I mentioning all this? It might have a little something to do with the fact that Sean rather rashly signed me up to write for the London edition – I’ll post when it goes live.
