What a whirlwind past few months for citizens journalism and distributed media, with concerted efforts and money coming together to push this forward.

Now, joining John Battelle, who is pulling together his team for the FM Publishing network, and Dan Gillmor, who is easing into his project with Bayosphere, is John Palfrey.

Palfrey writes that he's putting together a fund, outside of the work he does at Harvard's Berkman Center, to put money into citizens journalism, RSS, etc.

Fred Wilson has a nice roundup on how some of the media networks (Gawker and Weblogs Inc.) are doing.

Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal.
