Our sponsor charity at Mortgage Revolution

The contraction of the news reporting industry has been well documented, and leaves behind a nagging social question.  Who is funding the stories that will illuminate the good causes going unnoticed, and the investigative reporting that uncovers the Watergates. Even more important, who is charged with this kind of reporting at the local level when salaried local journalists go by the wayside?

I've chosen to support a nonprofit organization developing the new journalistic models to present the stories that need to be heard and funded. Spot.us "crowdsources" reporting from an engaged community of individuals and organizations who vote with micropayments.

The missions of Spot.us and Mortgage Revolution are aligned. At the core, both organizations are about making sure the channels for information distribution remain intact, for mortgages and for journalistic reporting.

I'm proud of be associated with Mortgage Revolution and the contributions from all of you will help Spot.us to develop a new model to engage our communities through other organizations just like Mortgage Revolution. We ask you to stay tuned as we unveil this new model after the conference.
