Company Details

Update

DotSpots is a service that enables anyone to update the news in real-time with dots, or distributed objects of thought: mini-blog posts containing text, videos, images, documents, perspectives from the blogosphere, or eye-witness accounts from the scene.

These dots appear as a stream of high-quality user-generated editorial content directly in-context of all relevant articles across the web, where they are rated and vetted for usefulness by readers — the wisdom of crowds.

As a result, news sites gain comprehensive coverage for each breaking story without incurring additional cost, readers get to see multiple perspectives and eye-witness media without extra effort, and worthy alternative view-points from the blogosphere are given the mainstream exposure they deserve, in near real-time.
