So what’s next? Spot Us will be a nonprofit to test a new business model – community funded journalism.
What I’m going to build will be a marketplace for journalism. News organizations (old or new media) can use the space to support their most enterprise projects. Community and civic organizations can come together, take a stand and let the media know what is being under-reported. Independent journalists can get paid to do what they do best – report on local stories, all while building up their portfolio.
