  8. 8. https://www.cogitatiopress.com/mediaandcommunication/article/view/128 (Appelgren & Salaverria 2018) “National and EU legislation in both nations [Sweden and Spain] shape journalistic strategies for accessing data, turning journalists at times into activists fighting for the right to access public data. Beyond the law, data journalists advocate for a transparency culture among the civil servants, in order to secure public accountability.”

  15. 15. “In solving a problem efficiently, we might further ask whether an approximate solution is good enough, whether we can use randomization to our advantage, and whether false positives or false negatives are allowed. Computational thinking is reformulating a seemingly difficult problem into one we know how to solve, perhaps by reduction, embedding, transformation, or simulation.” https://www.cs.cmu.edu/~15110-s13/Wing06-ct.pdf (Wing 2004)

  46. 46. https://www.cogitatiopress.com/mediaandcommunication/article/view/128 “At first sight, working with data promises to challenge the regime, in part by taking a more conventionalist or interpretivist epistemological position with regard to the representation of truth. However, we argue that how journalists and other actors choose to work with data may in some ways deepen the regime's epistemological stance.” (Lesage & Hackett 2014)

  51. 51. https://academic.oup.com/bjc/article/54/2/222/372562 “It is increasingly the case that it simply does not make sense to think about certain types of crime in terms of our conventional notions of space. Cybercrime, white-collar financial crime, transnational terrorism, fraud and identity theft all have very real local (and global) consequences, yet ‘take place’ within, through or across the ‘space of flows’ (Castells 1996). Such a-spatial or inter-spatial crime is invariably omitted from conventional crime maps.” (Kindynis 2014)
