Interesting happenings in Madison, Wisconsin where a blogger is covering the local school elections, with candidate interviews (audio and video), links to individual campaign finance information and more. Dan Gilmour at siliconvalley.com (scroll down) reports that he’s searched the Web site of the Madison paper and can’t find comparable coverage.

Gilmour quotes Tim Porter: “Imagine what a newspaper could do with many reporters and many keyboards if only it could break free of conventions dictating what it should do.”
