Jim Hightower:

"Check out iBrattleboro.com. For more than a year now, this Vermont website lets the readers be the reporters on what's really going on in town. Anyone can contribute, and anyone can comment on the contributions."

Washington Post business section:

"..the Town's web site..."

Vermont Public Radio:

"The Internet has created a new kind of community that has little to do with geography. Typically these virtual communities are made up of people separated by great distances, drawn together by common interests. But what if people shared an interest in the place where most of them actually lived? Then you might have something like ibrattleboro.com."

J-Lab's New Voices:

"iBrattleboro.com, has become something much bigger: a powerful voice for the town of Brattleboro, Vt. ...an informal, ever-changing place for Brattleboro residents to share information."

Annenberg's Online Journalism Review:

"(one of) the best citizen journalism sites at the community level" -- a "vibrant virtual village green"
