Data journalism: a mailing list for Italian users
We are pleased to announce a useful resource for Italy’s data journalism community. The mailing list <firstname.lastname@example.org> has already more than a dozen subscribers and a great discussion plan. To be clear, this initiative is mostly due to the pressing support of Maurizio Napolitano, researcher at Fbk in Trento and Italian ambassador for the Open Knowledge Foundation, and to the extremely positive experience of the Spaghetti Open Data list.
Here is a basic list of topics we plan to cover in the near future:
- best and most inspiring practices in data journalism in Italy and abroad;
- reviews of tools for scraping, analysis and visualization techniques;
- sources and ways of obtaining data when not readily available;
- info on conferences and relevant events worldwide.
Above all, we do hope this initiative will stimulate new contributions and collaborative data-based narratives.
