Spot.Us launched in November of 2008, making this our three year anniversary. Counting the months of planning (and applying for the Knight News Challenge) that went into the launch, I've been working on Spot.Us, a journalism crowdfunding project, for almost four years. In that time, we've pushed boundaries, and have had many successes and shortcomings which I've tried to share along the way. As I've always said, Spot.Us will never be perfect. It will never be "done," and as long as we can strive for something, we are making progress.
