A number of new digital journalism outfits entering the market today first test the waters by setting up crowdfunding campaigns, such as on platforms like Kickstarter or Indiegogo. Not only does this help give the projects an immediate idea of response to the proposition, but, if effective, can help to cover the initial costs at the same time. The International Journalists’ Network recently shared some advice from those who have run such campaigns, on how best to approach the task.

Dinner with Julian Assange

February 7th, 2011 | 1 Comment | Posted by in Editors' pick, Niche, PR

This Wednesday at 6:30pm, “people from around the world” will reportedly “commence dining” in what appears to be a fundraising initiative from under-siege whistleblowers’ site WikiLeaks.

All you need to do to join the party is make a donation to the site. And there is more bang for your buck than just dinner, you also get a password to play a video message from Julian Assange.

After you have filled out our pledge form you will be given a password (keep it safe!). The password will unlock a video for you to play at your dinner that will be available from 6.30pm GMT.

In the words of Julian Assange – “There are four things that cannot be concealed for long, the sun, the moon, the truth – and dessert!”

Check out this rather snazzy website for more information.

“Take a bite of truth!”
