Here are a few cool sites I heard about at BarCampPhillyNewsInnovation:
Civilbeat.com – EBay founder launching pay subscription news site in Hawaii
Kickstarter.com – A crowd-funding project like Spot.us, but this also funds ideas from “artists, filmmakers, musicians, designers, writers, athletes, adventurers, illustrators, explorers, curators, promoters, performers, and others.”
Cranford Patch – Part of AOL’s new hyperlocal effort to cover New Jersey.
Localocracy.org – An effort to educate about and invite participation in local politics in Amherst, Mass.
Also an update on the Spot.us story about the LA County Corner’s office.
