SF's Spot Us expands to Seattle
San Francisco-based Spot Us, which helps free-lancers connect with donors to fund journalism projects, is expanding to its third city, according to Seattle's Post Globe (a news site started by former employees of the Seattle Post Intelligencer). After launching in San Francisco in 2008, Spot Us opened up in Los Angeles and now is adding Seattle to its domain. Spot Us says it has raised close to $100,000 from donations averaging around $65 each, funding more than 60 reporting projects.
