Huffington Post buys Boston start-up

Localocracy to aid AOL subsidiary on Web projects

Adding to a string of recent expansions, AOL’s Huffington Post Media Group said yesterday it will buy a Boston technology start-up that is focused on building civic participation through websites.

Localocracy, which two years ago received $10,000 in seed funding from the University of Massachusetts Amherst Innovation Challenge, was sold for less than $1 million, according to the technology news site All Things D, which is owned by Dow Jones. Localocracy would not disclose terms of the sale.
