This week I decided to interview two experts in the local online communities, social networking and citizen journalism space.

First up is Laurel Papworth, a lecturer, online community expert and WoW fan. Laurel has worked for many gaming community sites, as well as incubating many organisation's community strategies. She tells the story better herself, so have a watch.

Second is Steven Noble: digital PR expert and blogger at Life in Chippendale. Steven explains how a citizen journalist and local community blog helps "offline", and is a powerful tool. Steven also recommends you listen to more garage music. Smiley

Listen, learn and find out blogging using Microsoft's Windows Live Spaces from Tina Wood.

Blogs do not have to be purely by geeks for geeks: they are new ways of having two-way conversations with people, locally; and all over the world
