Community News, as you like it

AP says Backfence is buying Bayosphere. 

Susan DeFife, Backfence's chief executive, said that while Gillmor brought the vision, Backfence is able to bring the tools to make it easier for readers to submit items — on local businesses, sports, events and anything else a reader might like to share.

There's a property called  Voic.us in Atlanta, focusing on the political scene, which is demonstrating how big media misses the details needed to draw a picture of the true story.

As an aside, Dan Gillmor is a good writer.  I am glad to hear his dream keeps on living.
