Open Data and Journalism


(Prianka Srinivasan) #1

Great paper on the impact of open data on journalism and the media: http://reutersinstitute.politics.ox.ac.uk/publication/does-open-data-need-journalism
Especially interesting are some of the difficulties raised in getting citizens and journalists to use and engage with open data. Does anyone have any insight into this? How can governments’ open data initiatives be better tailored to meet the needs of journalists and the media, or citizens in general?
