Bullwhiz is back. Again.
The Little Rock-based gossip e-mail, which began in Internet-infancy era of the early 90s and was read and fed by journalists, PR officials, politicos and business leaders, has gone through several incarnations and curators and now has been reborn as an Arkansas news aggregator.
You can check it out at Bullwhiz.com. The site is basically a collection of RSS feeds from several Arkansas news sources, including ArkansasBusiness.com and the Arkansas News Bureau, and prominent local blogs like The Arkansas Project, The Tolbert Report, Blake’s Think Tank, Capsearch and Under the Dome. (Tolbert even gets his own video feed!)
The site’s a far cry from its previous existence, what appears to be an Arkansas version of popular news aggregator Digg. Before that, it was on Google’s Blogspot platform. We’re not even sure who’s running the site now (we’ve sent an e-mail with inquiries). Former Bullwhiz editors include its founder, Arkansas PR pro Paul Johnson, and local businessman Charles Durnett, who died 2008.
We hope to have more answers soon. Meanwhile, you can follow Bullwhiz on Twitter @Bullwhiz.
