This really stuck out to me:
Anyone can take the code for Spot.Us and create their own version of it!
I tell people right now that the code isn’t ready to be used – but I think in a few months it’ll be stronger and I WANT people to take it and launch their own community funded reporting projects. I intend on expanding Spot.Us but would LOVE it if somebody beat me to their city.
Somehow I missed that the source for spot.us is being opened up as well. Dave’s support of an open model is nothing short of impressive.
Dave- I’m putting some more money into funding stories. I challenge those reading this to do the same. We need to support projects like this, that give back in such monumental ways.
