Thanks for this, Beth (and David!). As an advocate for social justice, I'm really excited about Spot.us as a driver of necessary media conversations that just aren't happening now; I have developed many good friends in journalism who are frustrated with their expanding workload and inability to do the as much investigative journalism as needed. I have some questions about how knowing that a story was funded by community folks with a particular interest may influence how the content is perceived (not phrasing that quite right, maybe, but related to perceptions of 'objectivity' (generally overstated, in my experience)), but I'm excited about the possibilities. Reading this made me think about the applicability of a similar crowdfunding strategy for advocacy campaigns, and I think there's much potential there. Thank you for sharing the ideas and for your really groundbreaking work in media.
