If you haven’t been following along with the Tow Center conference “Quantifying Journalism: Data, Metrics, and Computation” live-stream today (May 30), don’t worry. You haven’t missed all the good stuff.
Over the weekend, you can back-read some of the fascinating conversations about metrics in the newsroom and sensor and data journalism on Twitter using the hashtag #towtalk.
Plus, be sure to pore over the three research reports highlighting various facets of digital journalism that Tow Fellows are releasing today:
“Amateur Footage: A Global Study of User-Generated Content in TV and Online News Output“, by Claire Wardle and Sam Dubberley
“Sensors and Journalism“, by Fergus Pitt
“The Art and Science of Data-Driven Journalism“, by Alex Howard
The live blog for the conference is worth a gander, too.
