For the last several months I’ve been working on a whitepaper for the CUNY Tow-Knight Center for Entrepreneurial Journalism. It’s about cultivating more technical innovation in journalism and involves systematically mapping out what’s been done (in terms of research) as well as outlining a method for people to generate new ideas in computational journalism. I’m happy to say that the paper was published by the Tow-Knight Center today. You can get Jeff Jarvis’ take on it on the Tow-Knight blog, or for more coverage you can see the Nieman Lab write-up. Or go straight for the paper itself.
