Tweet of hyperlocal praise

A recent tweet by a guy called Will Perrin mentions the Gurn and MyNairn:

'willperrin two excellent #hyperlocal sites in tiny Nairn in 
highland scotland and'

Will has a site called Talk About Local and here's a couple of snippets from the site.

'Talk About Local is a project to give people in their communities a powerful online voice. We help people communicate and campaign more effectively using the web to influence events in the places in which they live, work or play.'

'A good, modern voice on the web can help communities communicate better, become more active and empowered. Community websites and forums make it easier for people to become involved in changing their area. The web can lower the barriers to finding basic information and make it easier to have your voice heard.'

Perhaps some might find it a bit of a specialist scene but the Gurnmeister likes it and will probably have a look after coming back from the Links School meeting tonight, via the Co-op for a Nairnshire of course.  Here's Will's site.
