Buffalo’s been a one-paper town since what, the eighties? Yes, there’s Artvoice, The Beast, etc. but basically it’s The News for news.
Well, paper is dead. Save a tree and hook up with Buffalo Rising. It’s been around for a while as a blog-style page on blogspot, but this week, they move to their own domain and it’s blossomed into an online news center for everything. It’s morphed into five sections (just like a printed paper, but no classified or cartoons – yet!) and has a clean, cool new look.
Check them out. You can see it at buffalorising.com and you can either sign up for email reminders of news items, or subscribe using your favorite RSS feed aggregator.
