10,000 Words was created as a resource for journalists and web and technology enthusiasts to learn the tools that are shaping digital journalism. The site offers examples, resources, and tutorials of both new and established technologies used to enhance journalism.
The name comes from the phrase “A picture is worth 1,000 words.” If this is so then a multimedia or interactive story is worth 10,000 words (or more).
10,000 Words is authored by Mark S. Luckie, a digital journalist who combines his love for journalism with his passion for technology. Mark is also the author of The Digital Journalist’s Handbook, a unique guide to the tools necessary to thrive in today’s digital newsroom. Mark has produced multimedia and interactive stories for the Center for Investigative Reporting, Entertainment Weekly, The Los Angeles Times, The Contra Costa Times, and is a former crime and justice reporter for The Daytona Beach News-Journal. He is a graduate of the University of California at Berkeley School of Journalism and Bethune-Cookman College.
