NBC News has shut down EveryBlock, one of the early pioneers of data-driven hyperlocal community news and information. The decision took effect today. Vivian Schiller, senior vice president and chief digital officer of NBC News, told me today by email: "[EveryBlock] is a wonderful scrappy business but it wasn't a strategic fit with our growth strategy and - like most hyperlocal businesses - was struggling with the business model."
