This presentation was given on August 24, 2010 in Amsterdam at the "Data-driven Journalism" Roundtable, organized by the EJC (European Journalism Centre).
The presentation is meant to ask questions, not necessarily to give all the answers - I am very open to discuss and debate everything here.
The whole one-day event was just great - with participants such as Simon Rogers (Guardian Datablog), Alan McLean (New York Times), the great Tony Hirst (OUseful.info), Stefan Fichtel, Burt Hermann (Hacks/Hackers) and Stijn Debrouwere.
Other media companies present as speakers or guests: Times, Financial Times, ARD, dpa,... am doing injustice here by not listing everyone, but the list would simply be too long. The programme and speakers list of the day can be found here: http://datadrivenjournalism.net/
Many of them met for the first time - which was one of the main goals when we started this.
