It’s the wonderful #TAL10 hyperlocal unconference tomorrow in Leeds. I’m in the marvellous venue now that the Guardian helped us find – Old Broadcasting House – on the great venue wifi. For details see of when and where see Nicky’s round up post.
There is a great discussion in the pre-event google group and i have distilled out a list of possible sessions here. Remember though its an unconference so anything can happen: these sessions will only go ahead on the day if people want them to and volunteer to run them and some might get merged into others or drop out in the agenda setting session:
Can you make money with these things?

Is hyperlocal always geographic?
What did Brighton ever do for us?
Legal threats to your site – how to deal with them
Hyperlocal sites and the elections
Hperlocal as part of the national news mix – working with big media companies
Benchmarking your hyperlocal site – stats etc
Bringing out true local character
Social media surgeries
Mix of content – how local is local?
Geek session – data and stuff
Hyperlocal news gathering
Geting started skills training and support

Ning – don’t panic – alternate solutions
