[edit] SOME QUESTIONS WE'LL CONSIDER:

  • Does our local Berkshires community need an independent, local news and opinion media source, whether print media, online, or both? Can The Berkshire Eagle or iBerkshires -- or Facebook -- meet that need?
  • If we do need such a source, what options exist for forming one? Suggestions:
    • A non-profit organization
    • Co-operative ownership (like a food co-op)?
    • A locally owned for-profit initiative or partnership (like iBerkshires or Hill Country Observer?
    • Print, online, or both?
  • How would such an enterprise be funded? Advertising? Subscriptions? Donations?
  • Who would the target audiences be?
