Posted: 9/10/2012 | By: Rachel McAthy | journalism.co.uk
US crime reporting site Homicide Watch DC has exceeded its target of
crowdfunding $40,000 on Kickstarter which will be used to help run a
"student reporting lab" as a way of ensuring the continuation of the
site for the next year.
Founder Laura Amico, who set up the site in September 2010, was selected as a Nieman-Berkman fellow and announced last month
that she would be going to study journalism innovation at Harvard, with her husband Chris who also works on the site.
