In October, we reported on the launch of Fwix, a local newswire service aggregating online sources, in eight UK cities.
Fwix is now expanding its aggregation to cover hyperlocal sources of news, as TechCrunch explains:
[C]ontent on Fwix will display relationships between both topics and nearby location. For example, after reading a story about a robbery that took place in the Mission district of San Francisco, you’ll be able to find any other crime and or stories about the Mission neighborhood.
