Building the ‘nearby button’
of the internet.
Last fall, our team at Pixel Labs (Ripple News) joined with Hoodline, and together we set out to help people discover what's really happening in the world around them. We're building a new way to make this a reality — a platform that lets people get neighborhood-level insights and relevant information, where and when it matters most to them. Read the details here.
We've also been busy analyzing how cities work. If you're a reader of our local news site, you know we've been using more data analysis and visualizations in recent investigations into local business vacancy issues, transit fare inspection problems, neighborhood crime rates , and area cuisine trends. And for those familiar with our past efforts, the Ripple News city app we tested last year is forming the core of the location-based technology to make this all work.
As one company now, we're rebranding as Hoodline, and building the 'nearby' button of the internet, to power local discovery. The result will be more relevant content and insights showing up wherever you are.
