GrowthSpur: new business to help local sites

Media giraffe Mark Potts (along with other known names in media, including Jeff Jarvis) has started a new company to help local sites earn money.  Mark Potts once ran Backfence, a collection of local sites, but it failed for financial reasons.  He's now coming back with GrowthSpur, which offers a host of services to try to help the kind of sites he originally intended to start up.  You can read more on the GrowthSpur website, or in this Business Week article.
