Why not Stinky Onion? Or something catchy with Chi or Windy or Second? What would compel you to call a Chicago site the Daily77?
The answer is simple. Chicago is composed of 77 neighborhoods. These neighborhoods form the heart and soul of Chicago’s diverse ethnicities, cultures, and heritage.
From the political activism in Rogers Park to intellectual hubs in Hyde Park to financial centers in the Loop, Chicago has it all.
We could come up with a thousand reasons to create this site.
In the end, we settled on our 77 favorite reasons. We hope you enjoy our reasons as much as we do.
What is the Daily77
The Daily77 is your neighborhood soapbox. A place that gives voice to the issues near and dear to your heart.
It is also a place where you can find out the latest events and news happening in the city.
Furthermore, you can use the Daily77 to connect with neighbors and friends in your neighborhood. After all, wouldn’t it be nice if your neighbors felt more like… neighbors. Compared to the sound you hear on the other side of your paper-thin walls.
Additionally, we see Daily77 as a chance to add a bit of democracy to our society. In an age where people think it is okay to shout at the other side (whichever side that may be) and tweet insults, we need a place for real communication.
Yes, we might not always agree with what you say, and you might not always agree with what we say. That is the point of democracy. Everyone can have a voice.
More succinctly in the immortal words of S.G. Tallentyre, “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”
How to use the Daily77
The wonderful thing about the Daily77 is you have a lot of options. You can read the latest news around the city or in your neighborhood.
Or if you want you can voice your concerns on our forum. Just don’t be too eloquent or we might ask to turn your views into an article to get them out to a wider audience.
Additionally, you can peruse the various events in the city.
You can also scour the website for the best deals on whatever gizmos, gadgets, and thingies galore you need in our business directory.
Feel free to also sit back and watch the live and recorded videos we add to the website as well.
In the end, you decide how to interact with Daily77. We just give you a few ideas here and there based on what you enjoy as well as what is popular on the site.
I thought I would end this article with some wise words of wisdom. As I don’t have any at the current moment, you will just have to wait for future articles to be wizened and wittier.
