Spot.Us Launches

I’m very proud to have helped design David Cohn’s Knight News Challenge-award-winning crowd-funded journalism site. Spot.Us provides a platform for ordinary citizens to commission stories from freelance journalists, giving (1) the public a say in what stories get written, and (2) creating a new revenue stream for journalists who’re confronting budget cuts and layoffs in almost every newsroom in America.

After months of behind-the-scenes action, Spot.Us finally launched, with nice write-ups in Wired, the Huffington Post, and TechCrunch. Go check it out—or better yet, suggest a story for journalists to tackle!

  1. And for the record – Spot.Us would not be where it is without your hard work.

    LOVED working with you and hope to do it again soon.

  2. Wooo! Congrats on the launch! Your hard work has really paid off!
