Decatur Metro
Frustrated that metro Atlanta's most walkable burg didn't have its own daily news source, the quasi-anonymous resident behind DECATUR METRO decided to take matters into his own hands.

Frustrated that metro Atlanta's most walkable burg didn't have its own daily news source, the quasi-anonymous resident behind DECATUR METRO decided to take matters into his own hands. Little did he know that his first post in September 2007 would give birth to the city's most prolific news source. Half community newsletter, half sounding board for city issues, Decatur Metro is hyperlocal to the core. Daily posts — which are really closer to conversations — have probed the enigmatic aroma that wafts through Your DeKalb Farmers Market, protested the strange garbage juice leaking from a downtown Dumpster, and even veered into coverage about the city's school system and annexation proposals. The site has become such a destination that even city officials chime in on discussions and answer questions. For his nose for news, clever writing, and creating a needed community, we raise a glass of the Brick Store’s finest. www.decaturmetro.com. less...

There were, at press time, about 14.9 jillion gazillion blogs on the Internet, most of them indulgences in mental masturbation. One that is not is www.extremecraft.com, the creation of local artist and graphic designer Garth Johnson. Begun as a way to highlight cool examples of craft, both low-brow and high, the blog has become a forum for Johnson’s irreverent and literate approach to art and art criticism. In March, he highlighted a taxidermist who will turn the fur of your departed pet into a pillow. Remarked Johnson: “I wonder what she could do for my goldfish.” But it’s his occasional lapses into the profane that keep the blog fresh. To wit: “Ceramics Monthly magazine can suck my nuts.”
