Lawrence, KS: Newspaper Tech Convergence
One tidbit: every little kid who plays sports in the town has their own web page, with box scores, cumulative stats, an audio interview and a service to compare their stats with any other player! T-ball players, even. It's adorable. And parents can sign up to receive an automatic email or cell phone text message if a game gets canceled. The KU basketball team's section of the paper's site offers to text fans' phones every ten minutes during a game with an update, and last weekend 5,000 people were signed up for the service! Of course there's far more involved than sports, but that's just some of the most endearing.
