Luxury Connect | Oct. 16-18 | Beverly Hills

With mainstream media in the midst of a major transformation, mashups that blend user-generated content with more traditional news sources are cropping up across the Web.

These hybrid, aggregated news sites can blur the boundaries of social media and journalism, serving as a catch-all for all types of timely online content.

Joseph Ferrara, a New York real estate attorney and publisher of the often offbeat and sometimes irreverent Sellsius real estate blog, and partner Anthony Barba are seeking to define these blurry lines with the launch of TheClozing.com.
