A citizen journalism experiment that's working in Watertown, Mass.?

A Citizen Journalism Experiment that's Working | Bayosphere
Lisa Williams (via Pressthink): If I Didn't Build it, They Wouldn't Come: Citizen Journalism is Discovered (Alive) in Watertown, MA. It seemed to me that a successful newsblog might have a business model that looked more like public radio – periodic pledge drives and underwriters – than the subscription/advertising model that many news outlets were dragging into the online world. To make it work, they’d have to get over something I suspected they and many journalists had: hesitation about being directly involved with handling the money.
