The Local Project
TheLocalProject is a crowdsourcing effort to advance the local Internet known as “Web Localization”. Our objectives are to: Compile the best local information into one place (our Mobile App), give local consumers control over the information they see, equip local businesses and community organizations with interactive technology, connect local residents, businesses, and communities together and lastly, and perhaps most important, promote local commerce.
These objectives are accomplished through the efforts of local people who form a “Local Team” within their community. These Local Teams coordinate community involvement with the ultimate goal to establish a “local area network” (LAN) within the community. NEPA’s local team is led by Justin DePhillips, an Area Director with TheLocalProject, who’s lived in NEPA his entire life and is highly invested in the success and well-being of our area.
