During the last couple of months, most of my posts here have focused on the New Media Journalism Initiative’s work with the Block by Block community of independent news publishers.
That’s understandable, given how much activity there’s been in this aspect of our work. The Block by Block Community News Summit in September was a productive gathering of entrepreneurial publishers, sharing both common problems and potential solutions. Since the news summit, we’ve been doing some exciting work around financial sustainability. I’m hoping to start sharing details of what we’re learning from that effort after the first of the year.
