Roy Greenslade on the BBC’s regional websites

The BBC has some curious plans to invest £tens of millions in what appear to be regional news websites with a strong video content.  Roy Greenslade is hoovering up comments on this here over at the Guardian.  Roy is starting to get the ultra or hyperlocal debate but is coming at it from a trad. media angle rather than a digital native.  He hasn’t quite got the hang of the role of volunteers and human news geographies in all this yet though.
