Spot.us celebrates first community funded news article

It’s all celebrations today. Spot.us is happy to announce its first community funded
news article,
written by Alexis Madrigal, ‘ Changing Locomotion in Midstream – The Full Report’.

As we’ve reported before, “Spot Us” is a project of the Center for Media Change, and funded by the Knight foundation. It uses ‘crowdfunding’ – where an individual or group takes control of news by sharing the cost – to commission freelance journalists.

The Spot.us team are also pleased that their next news examples are on the way to completion, and their their future homepage is very close to being finished.
