Why data matters at the Guardian

Why data matters at the Guardian | Journalism, code and data | Scoop.it
In his forward for Facts are Sacred, Guardian's editor-in-chief Alan Rusbridger explains how data is changing journalism
Pierre Levy's insight:

The Guardian's Datablog, and its graphics, are the modern face of our approach to data, and the best of this is showcased within this book. From graphics explaining the economy or government spending, to background information on events, to in-depth analysis of huge news events like the UK's riots of 2011, data has been a core component of the Guardian's coverage.

luiy's curator insight, June 7, 9:10 AM

As it currently stands, big data is one seriously wild, wild west. It's implications are far reaching, but its implementations are quite slow. And even once the use of big data is implemented for an individual, across a company, for a country, throughout the globe — will we even know the true value of the information provided? Will we be able to tell when big data turns into useful data? Can we look at the industry and see the emergence of a data democracy — and then use it as such?
