Assignments for October 1

Read these. We’ll discuss these in class, or on here as well.

Pat Stith on computer-assisted reporting
Adrian Holovaty: A fundamental way newspaper sites need to change
Rivers of Data, by yours truly

Do this:

Starting no later than Monday, think of something that you do often enough (daily or more often) that you can keep track of by writing it down or typing it up. Nothing too personal, unless you’re into oversharing. Some examples (which you cannot use, of course): how many hours you slept the previous night, or what time(s) of the day you checked Twitter. You may keep it by hand or in Word/Excel/whatever on the computer. Be prepared to talk a bit about it. It’ll make sense next Thursday, honest.
