Data journalism staff training for WHYY, Philadelphia Daily News 8.1.11 0
by in Journalism

My colleague Brian James Kirk and I dropped in on the WHYY and Philadelphia Daily News newsrooms last month to offer a brief overview of data tools for journalists.

For general interest shops with varying degrees of knowledge, it was more an introduction than anything.

We shared this rough document and basically ran through the below presentation.

I highlighted some very basic, existing, local data-driven applications, and Brian suggested how journalists could take it further: perhaps with Google Fusion or other free tools.

Christopher Wink is the cofounder of publishing consultancy firm Technically Media and its technology news network Technically Philly. Wink has reported for the Philadelphia Inquirer, Metro, Philadelphia CityPaper, and other publications. The journalist lives in the Fishtown neighborhood of Philadelphia. He maintains a personal blog here and tweets from @christopherwink.
