Spot.us founder David Cohn sat down with us for a little Q & A.
FBLA: How has the reception been to this idea so far? Has there been a lot of money raised?
DC: The reception has been good. People are genuinely excited about it. If I had a $5 donation for every person that said it was a smart idea, we would have funded all our pitches by now
But seriously: So far people are really positive about it. We haven’t raised “a lot” of money by some standards, so far we’ve raised about $1,000 – but that’s not bad in just one week. The problem is that we must raise a lot more if we are going to fund some serious journalism.
