Data Driving Force in Web Journalism January 2, 2008

Posted by Joanne KY Teoh in Journalism, News, Reviews, Trends.

Rich Gordon at the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University has an interesting post, Data as Journalism, Journalism as Data. He writes that one of the most striking developments in online news has been the rapid proliferation of interesting database applications.

Gannett Co. newspapers have been leaders in this area, driven by the company’s “information center” initiative, which is yielding new organizational structures and approaches to information gathering and presentation. The “data desk” is one of the seven pillars of the company’s new approach to news.

As Gannett realizes, data should be a driving force in online journalism.
