Spot.us Founder David Cohn Announces New Project: Circa

Well that was fast. Fresh off ceding control of his startup Spot.us to American Public Media’s Public Insight Network, David Cohn is already diving into a new project. He calls it Circa.

It’s in stealth right now. But I can say this much – it will start off as a mobile application and the goal is to create a consumer friendly product that keeps people engaged and informed about what’s happening in the world. The problem set is unique and as the details of it shape you’ll see how it fits into the history of my career thinking of journalism as a process, not a product. I’ll be the founding editor helping think through, from top to bottom, the process of consumer driven journalism.

Cohn says Circa is inspired by Ben Huh‘s Moby Dick Project. But that’s about all we know at this point. We’ll press Cohn for more details as the project evolves.
