"I think there's a real potential for well-funded online-only community sites . . . particularly if they can identify an underserved market and focus on proven Internet revenue drivers, such as classified advertising."

BlufftonToday.com is a grand experiment in citizen journalism, a complete inversion of the typical "online newspaper" model, an Internet-powered interactive community center. Here's a short list of what we're doing:

--Everyone gets a blog. Not just staffers, but everyone in the community. LeMonde (France) and the Mail and Guardian (South Africa) are doing this, too. I don't know of others but would appreciate pointers.

--Everyone gets a photo gallery.

--Everyone can contribute events to a shared public community calendar.

--Everyone can contribute recipes to a community cookbook.

--RSS feeds are everywhere -- all the blogs collectively, all the blogs individually, classified ad search results and so forth.
