Future of Journalism(Alan Rusbridger) = Future of Data?

Alan gives an interesting commentary on this video about the future of journalism and how The Guardian is addressing the new world of open information. The parallels between this and data management keep ringing home for me. What do you think?



  1. The trick for me is building the audience. Rusberger talks with passion about the value to him and his journalists of Twitter and being able to tap into the expertise of thousands of people worldwide.

    Momentum is everything, and we need our data colleagues to embrace these new communication mediums. Come on guys, jump on board!!

  2. Securing the scarce attention of people in these economic trying times is indeed a challenge. I would argue with those who claim not to have time that engaging in the sharing of ideas should spawn innovation and efficiency going forward which saves time. You don't know if you don't try!
