You’ll be doing a two-part response this week, but it’s an easy one. On Briggs’ chapter 9 (data journalism) and on the group blogs. In your response:
- Read through the first week of one of the other group blogs – AlmostHeaven Entertainment and Morgantown Problems will read each other, and Morgantown Man Cave and The Cap, the Gown & The Pursuit of Happiness. What’s their mission? What are they doing well so far, and what needs work? You need to critique honestly – everyone in this class needs advice in these early stages.
- Re-read Briggs chapter 9 and provide your thoughts on data journalism. What is it? Who does it? How can it inform your work? Notice I’m not giving you links to read this week; instead, I want you to provide an example of your own that you continue data journalism (if you use Google to find an example, please don’t be too obvious about it – I’ve seen the top search hits already).
Since I’m later than usual getting this up, I’ll extend the deadline. You have until the start of class, 11:30 a.m., Tuesday, Oct. 29, to post your response in a comment to this post.
