Everyone: This is linking to a very cool "How to" for data journalism, written by Sarah Cohen (Washington Post). It starts from a journalist perspective, asking "What is the story in the data?". Excellent piece. http://www.ire.org/resourcecenter/nettour/2949_visualize.pdf

Great work by Simon Rogers: NATO operations in Libya: data journalism breaks down which country does whathttp://www.guardian.co.uk/news/datablog/2011/may/22/nato-libya-data.... Would be interesting to correlate this with a mapping of interests of each of the contributing countries in the area.

Dear all, we set up a survey to gather the opinion of journalists on the emerging practice of data-driven journalism and understand what needs to be trained as starting point for planning some trainings on data journalism. The results of the survey will be made freely available and one of the entries will win a EUR 100 Amazon gift voucher. Taking the survey will not take more than 10 minutes and would be much appreciated: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/data_journalism.
