Center for Citizen Media Examines Business Aspects of Citizen Media

The Center for Citizen Media is in the midst of a series of posts exploring possible business models for citizen journalism and the processes surrounding the creation of a website. The series is primarily the work of Ryan McGrady, a new media graduate student at Emerson College, who was an intern here at the CMLP this past summer.

The series, which the Center for Citizen Media plans to turn into a comprehensive online guide, began with an introduction on September 24, but has now progressed to cover the following topics:

General Business Issues
Affiliate Programs
Memberships and Subscriptions 

It's an excellent series and well worth following.

(Note: Dan Gillmor, who is the director of the Center for Citizen Media, is also a founder of the CMLP.)
