Tracy Boyer of Innovative Interactivity has published an Interview with Mirko Lorenz about the Data driven journalism roundtable that took place in Amsterdam on August 24th. Lorenz is journalist / information architect for Deutsche Welle and organizer for the European Journalism Centre, initiator of the conference.
The unifying goal is storytelling. So (I hope) this comes as a relief – whether you do classical reporting or get stories from data, the story is still the center piece of it all.
I recommend heading over to Innovative Interactivity to read the full interview. It’s well worth it.
