Cait O’Riordan recently shared the successes of BBC Online throughout the Olympics. She writes, “The BBC’s promise was to deliver coverage of every sport from every venue, and we certainly achieved this with our digital coverage: from the blue ribbon events like the 100m final all the way to the first taekwondo heats, the multi-faceted entirety of the Olympics was available to watch throughout the day across online and Red Button. Overall, this comprehensive coverage drove very large amounts of traffic to the Sport website and to Red Button channels.” continued…

August 15, 2012 by Jenz514   Comments (0)

Hedgehogs and Linked Data

August 14, 2012 by Jenz514   Comments (0)

Ross Spencer of the UK National Archives recently pointed to a project called Hedgehog Street. This is the premise: “Hedgehogs travel around one mile every night through our parks and gardens in their quest to find enough food and a mate. If you have an enclosed garden you might be getting in the way of their plans. Hedgehogs have enough barriers to contend with such as roads and rivers that we can’t do much about. However we can make their life a little easier by removing the barriers within our control – for example making holes in or under our garden fences and walls for them to pass through. The gap need only be around 15cm in diameter and so should not affect your pets’ safety.” continued…

Data Journalism Lessons Learned at the Olympics

August 14, 2012 by Jenz514   Comments (0)

Simon Rogers of The Guardian recently reviewed what the publication learned about data journalism after covering the London Olympics. Rogers writes, “There was never a guarantee that it would amount to anything for us. The Olympics may have been the only news story in town last week and would undoubtedly produce great journalism, but would it result in data journalism? At its essence, this is the gathering of stories from data. It’s more than just producing a few charts – data visualisation is often the expression of data journalism, but the process of digging through the data to find the stories that matter, that is at its heart.”
