Dryden, New York is a small town near Ithaca. Four years ago, local resident Simon St. Laurent began chronicling the civic life of the town on a blog called "Living in Dryden". In a 2004 profile the Ithaca Journal wrote: "St. Laurent can be seen, notebook and digital camera in tow, at Planning Board and Conservation Advisory Council gatherings, as well as at special meetings on fire departments, speeding and comprehensive plans. What could motivate this seemingly normal man to submit himself to hours of political talk and legalese?"
