Location: Berkeley, CAcalmediacollab

Focus: “to devise new strategies for coverage of critical issues affecting the lives of Californians and to engage Californians more fully in the democratic process by combining best journalistic practices with the power of new media tools”; blog posts include discussion and analysis on California media

Launched: First blog posts appear September 2008, group founded May 2007.

Employees/Writers: Founded by Louis Freedberg, Ph.D., a San Francisco Chronicle higher education and Washington correspondent until 2007. Five other staff members. Nineteen-member board of directors; supported by high-profile foundations.

Sample entries: “Are online newspapers sustainable” (last post, March 2009, as of June 2); “The disappearing Capitol photographer”; “A revenue milestone at”
