Google is testing a new application called Bulletin, a way for people to contribute stories about their own community. The free app lets people capture photos, videos, and text on their phone and then publish those microstories directly to the web without forcing people to create a blog or build any sort of web site. Google believes Bulletin can help communities highlight stories that aren't be told in regional newspapers or larger news sites. Stories published on Bulletin are public and easy to find via Google Search, social networks, and direct links. Bulletin relies on smartphones and no setup is necessary. The idea is to let more people share in creating the voice of their community. Google is testing Bulletin via limited pilots in Nashville, Tenn., and Oakland, Calif. People who live in those markets can request early access to the program.
