EveryBlock — New Startup Founded by Adrian Holovaty

Adrian Holovaty, the genius behind chicagocrime.org and several other sites pioneering the concept of programmer-as-journalist:

I’m thrilled to announce some huge news: I’ve been awarded a grant by the Knight Foundation, as part of the Knight News Challenge program.

I’ll be founding a Web startup, EveryBlock, that focuses on making local news and information useful. I’ve been feeling the entrepreneurial itch for a while and can’t wait to start hacking on this with a crack team of Web developers. Expect to hear much more about this from me, including job ads.
