I don't know about you guys but a lot of my world wide web activies are focused on my local town and not so much on the world at large. I use websites like livejournal, facebook, flickr, and my town's local newspaper site.

The greatest thing about all those websites is the comments! I think it's kind of funny how this world wide web that connects the whole world has been so useful for me to get in touch with and explore aspects of my town I never knew existed.

Have you had similar experiences about the internet bringing you closer to your microcosm?
