itown logoA few weeks ago, Harvey Kirkpatrick was looking for someone to help him set up a Radio Community Server and custom Radio installers. He contacted Brent first, and Brent was kind enough to recommend me.

The system is all set up. It's called "townblogs," and it's more than just a Radio hosting service.

itown.com is a big directory of towns. It doesn't have every town in the world, but most of them are in there (and if your town is missing, just ask them to add it). Each town has its own page.

The idea behind townblogs is that people like writing about their towns, so why not give them a place to do it?

It works like this: download a copy of itown Radio, and you have thirty days to decide if blogging is for you. If you enjoy it, then pay for your copy. If you are writing about your town then you can be listed on your town's page in the directory. Show it to your friends and maybe some of them will do the same thing about their towns. Link to each other. Then the search engines find you and your writing gains an audience as people read your writing to learn about your town.

The townblog sites are relaly nice looking. Bryan Bell did the theme and logo designs. (Yes, I'm a little jealous...)

Harvey is the man "about town" (excuse the pun). He's been dreaming about this for seven years, and it's finally starting to take shape. I hope it works out for him, I hope it's wildly successful.

I hope... I hope he eventually uses Conversant to host the itown directories. ;-)
