Trilogy Launches Local News Site?

Longtime Austin technology company Trilogy wants to ride the local advertising wave. Today it launched the alpha version of the Austin Post, a site focused on Austin news.

It will initially feature content from local bloggers, but if the site generates revenue, full time professional journalists may be hired.

As most know, newspapers are having a rather difficult time right now, but online only versions have significant advantages over the dead tree versions. It’s good to see something new being tried.
