DescriptionWhen Denise Greig and some colleagues founded New Hampshire-based digital newspaper The Forum in 2005 web-based journalism hadn’t really made its way to the rural communities that it served. “When we took on [this project] we were explaining the Internet to our funders” laughs Greig the current chair of The Forum’s board of directors. Six years later with The Forum averaging 14000 hits per month from Granite Staters who have found its blend of local news and commentary a welcome addition to the region’s civic life it seems she and her fellow creators are having the last laugh.
