The Center for Citizen Media will be seeking funding from a variety of sources including companies in the technology industry. When and if we receive such funding, we will say so on this page in addition to a posting on the blog.
In addition, when we write about these companies in blog postings, we will also disclose that they are funders in the body of the posting.

In addition, he is an investor or advisor to several companies in the technology and media worlds. As with funders, those ties will be disclosed here and, where appropriate, in blog postings.
