The CEO search for the Philadelphia Public Interest Information Network continues, and I am writing to share a backgrounder created by the leadership of the Center for Public Interest Journalism at Temple University and Opus Partners, the search firm hired to identify potential candidates for the CEO position.  The backgrounder was created to provide information on the history of the project to prospective candidates, and we’re making it generally available because it will provide further clarity on the project’s evolution and intentions.  Please feel free to reach out with questions or comments following review.

Also would like to flag a blog entry by Christopher Wink, the co-founder of Technically Philly and a stakeholder of the PPIIN project, in which he offers his ideas for what PPIIN (and the CPIJ) should be. Earlier this month, he shared his vision for what should be. CPIJ and PPIIN leadership welcome input into the planning of both organizations, so please feel free to share thoughts in comments or send to michael <dot> greenle <at> gmail <dot> com.

Finally, the application process for the Knight-Batten Awards for News Innovation, a program of J-Lab, is now open.  Qualified applicants from the Greater Philadelphia news and information community are encouraged to apply.
