Pick of the Week: Spot.us

Check out Spot.us and try to figure out what it does and how it works.

One of the most high profile Spot.us projects was reported by Lindsey Hoshaw, a graduate of Stanford University with a background in environmental journalism. She raised more than $6000 from more than 100 people through Spot.us. The donations helped cover the cost of reporting a story about a huge garbage patch floating in the Pacific. The New York Times covered the rest of the cost and as a result earned the exclusive rights to publish the story: Afloat in the Ocean, Expanding Islands of Trash
