|Seed, 2010 |
Sunne.ws is a hyper-local news and information source that focuses on individual communities (Sun Spots).
A Sun Spot is a cool patch â€“ not dark at all, like real sun spots â€“ on the Internet that provides everyday folks with everything they need to know about their community, and exclusively their community. Sun Spots update several times a day with news content, event listings, opinions and special deals.
Sunne.ws combines traditional, original reporting (by Elauwit Media’s staff) with aggregated news content, social media integration (like Twitter feeds), multi-media and user interaction (like a point-based gaming system) â€“ all catered to a specific community.
Within a Sun Spot, youâ€™ll find news thatâ€™s all about your community, user-uploaded photos and videos that are all about your community, opinions and commentary that is all about your community, games that are all about your community, and event listings that are all about your community.
The platform also includes utilizing the purchasing power of group buying (mysundeal.com) and being able to purchase and/or sell goods and services at a cheap price (itsjust10.com).
