HuffPo's Local Initiative

A month or two ago, HuffPo announced they were launching a local initiative. The first site, Chicago, is up. With only one full-time employee, it's an interesting mix of stuff, and it stands a chance in this fracas including Gothamist,, Curbed, and Metroblogging -- all very different sites, but nonetheless approaching local from a network perspective.

I don't know what I was expecting from it, but I was expecting more. Although, I suppose it's too early to judge. After all, they do have that "beta" tag on their logo. (Why do people do "beta" tags? Seems to me it hurts your branding.)

Oh, they're good, but they're not a network...

But they are -- probably more than any of the other sites I listed -- the biggest competition HuffPo will face in Chicago.
