DescriptionDensely populated and filled with restaurants nightspots and shops Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood is one of the city’s hubs of cool. Even those who don’t live in the area keep tabs on the neighborhood’s comings and goings to see what hot spot will arrive next. Not a bad home for a news website. Enter a hyperlocal community news outlet founded in 2006 that tracks development crime and culture. Started by Justin Carder in his spare time while working in web analytics for Microsoft Capitol Hill Seattle slowly grew into a business as Carder reached out to residents and gathered information and sources within the neighborhood. Shortly after founding the site Carder left Microsoft to work on his community news venture full-time.
