    Hi everyone!

    I'm building a website for my local city using HotaruCMS. I've tried Pligg but it seems Pligg has too many security flaws and is no longer being supported.

    I think social bookmarking allows local communities to foster participation by actively encouraging people to submit things. Hyperlocal community websites have so far failed because they used the same old process of talking to people instead of talking with people. The old way is to tell people what the news is instead of asking what news is important to them. Social bookmarking can solve this by having community members actually participate. Everyone is a journalist!

    It's amazing how so many applications that claim to be social are nothing more than one-way communicating tools. A true social website is one in which everyone has a small part to play in determining the news.

    I hope to meet and network with people who are interested in using a script like HotaruCMS to build and foster real world local community news and information gathering.
