http://mashupcitizen.com/ is worth a look. Here is an intro from their site:
We are a collaborative blog about people and urbanism. Mashup Citizen is an online platform based on a community of authors who write about their cities, neighborhoods and emblematic places from first hand experiences and everyday observations.
Our goal is to capture the ongoing transformation of the metropolis by collecting individual voices linking inquiry to place and place to cyberspace. Our writers follow individual beats, each opening an intimate window to urban life, practices, technologies and politics.
We are interested in pursuing an inclusive virtual dialogue about cities and their residents through the intersection of multiple voices marking singular experiences and spaces. By reflecting upon our own legitimacy as writers, we hope to also consider the voices that are not present in this dialogue and ask: how can we use virtual space to foster action and bring change to cities?
As the terms implies, Mashup Citizen is about the combination of multiple fragments of media, pluralist perspectives and diverse opinions into a new form of civic understanding and participation. In this way we expect that the development of our content offers an imaginary map of the urban landscape that defines our contemporary times.
Back to RR:
It is good to look around and see what else is going on. St. Louis has some great blogs, actions activities and more and pumping in some fresh views from other urban areas can lead to some cool surprises.
