The Guardian are piloting N0tice a publishing platform based on location using the metaphor of a community noticeboard. People can sign up to create their own board, customize it, leave messages, place small ads, anything they like.

Testers are starting to use it for a range of different things: whether it’s local bloggers, people selling items, listing events in their community, reporting road closures, and so on.

While small ads are free to run, companies that want to target users pick a location and pay depending on how far they want their message to spread.

Might be worth watching…
