After working for daily newspapers for 15 years, I started Leimert Park Beat.com, a news & social network for my neighbohrood, known as the Soul of Los Angeles. There are more than 1,000 members who contribute to the website and tens of thousands of readers.

That's the power of community. The power of .com unity.

Since then with residents throughout the city, we have started:

Echo Park Online it's the hippest.

Unviersity Park Family, in partnership with USC.

Rancho Park Online, where LA feels like home.

San Pedro News Pilot, it's not your daddy's fish wrap.

Culver City Times, for the best city in Los Angeles.
