ChicagoNow, the collection of local blogs brought together by the Chicago Tribune, was brought out of beta today! You'll be seeing and hearing a lot about it in the next week. I'll be on WGN Radio 720 John Williams Show tomorrow at 11am and in Pioneer Plaza on Friday from 10am to 1pm participating in the "Chalk Blog". I'll be there since I've got a blog on ChicagoNow, too. You should check it out - it's awesome.
