Journaliste de données : data as storytelling

Qu’est-ce que le data journalisme ? Quels sont les enjeux ? Décryptage, pour mieux comprendre la richesse du croisement entre données publiques et journalisme.

This takes you to a form where you give your object a name, for a example ‘Andy’s Mug’ or ‘BBC Broadcasting House’ are some of things we have added so far.

Everything has a location so we are creating a ‘Geography of Everything’, a brave claim perhaps but one that develops a new a new kind of geography, the geography of things. Each thing created gets assigned a unique ‘qrcode’ which can be attached to your object. Physical Space Tweets: Pst! microCONTROL. Pst!
