The Future is Data

The Future is Data | dataInnovation | Scoop.it

At a time when journalism is undergoing a profound crisis as a result of the rise of social networks, financing difficulties, and increasing layoffs in the media industry, the 1st Data Journalism Conference organised by the Spanish chapter of the Open Knowledge Foundation opened up a new direction for the profession; a future that paradoxically goes back to its origins: to the search for new sources, to objective accounts of events and to data analysis.

Fàtima Galan's insight:

Great summary about the speakers talk given on the 1st Data Journalism Conference by Mar Cabra, Eva Belmonte, John Burn-Murdoch and Manuel Aristarán.
Through the data analysis today we can speak about Data Journalism, Smart Cities, Open Government. The use and exploitation of any data source, proprietary or external (Open Data or not), shows a change that allows processes for understand what happens and the development of others oriented to the business. The companies are the main interested on the acquisition and exploitation of this data to gain competitive advantage. But they aren’t the only ones able to use this data. Users can also maximize the creation and use of information for the creation and development of politics that allows a better management of our resources and benefits for the citizens.

luiy's curator insight, July 8, 2013 7:32 AM

Mar Cabra, an investigative journalist specialising in data journalism and a member of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), began her presentation by quoting The Guardian’s motto: “Facts are sacred”. And indeed, there is no room for opinion in data journalism, which simply consists of the facts and the objective information that can be extracted from the data. Cabra mentioned three examples of organisations that work with data – Sunlight Foundation, MySociety and Civio Citizen Foundation – and discussed several examples of journalistic stories put together using data, including:

Tu tasa de paro: “your unemployment rate”, a website that analyses Spain’s official unemployment figures released by the National Institute of Statistics, and calculates the unemployment rate for the profile entered by the user. The idea was inspired by a similar project developed in New York.España en llamas: “Spain in flames”, based on data from the Ministry of Agriculture, this map show all the fires recorded in Spain between 2001 and 2010. A project developed by Civio with the help of crowdfunding.How riot rumours spread on Twitter: a remarkable graphic analysis produced by The Guardian, which shows how a rumour is born and dies. This example studies the rumours spread through Twitter during the 2011 London riots.Dollars for docs: a project by ProPublica, a US-based data journalists association, which analyses the money that pharmaceutical companies give to general practitioners. Essential information that can shed light on why a doctor prescribes a particular drug, what pharmaceutical companies give doctors the most money, and so on.WhoKnowsWho: a project by British TV’s Channel 4 that shows the connections between people in positions of power and reveals the relationships between them.Qué hacen los diputados: a project – that continues to seek funds through crowdfunding – which allows users to keep tabs on what Catalan MPs do in Parliament: what they vote, the proposals they make, and so on.

Mar Cabra (whose presentation, in Spanish, is available here) raised the need for collaboration between journalists and programmers – an observation that would keep coming up throughout the conference. Journalists need somebody to help them tell their story graphically and to analyse the data, and programmers need somebody to find the story hidden among all that data. So how is the data obtained in the first place? Some clues can be found in blogs such as The Guardian Datablog, La Nación Data Blog, Information is beautiful, (Re)Structuring Journalism, Between the spreadsheets and Spreadsheet Journalism.
