My data journalism colleague Tom Boadle posted this video of this excellent introductory talk by Jack Roberts from the Future Human project. The project run various debates, talks and events that are part of their ‘theatre of innovation’. They describe themselves as “a multi-platform media project that incorporates live events, books and digital experiences.”
For those new working with data, Jack gives an excellent view of the history behind data journalism and the importance it will play in the future of news gathering. The panel at the event also included Mark Stephens, the lawyer representing Julian Assange, Martin Moore of the Media Standards Trust and Ben Leapman of the Daily Telegraph.
