And You Thought Your Newsroom Was Innovative Does your daily newspaper offer romance novels on the side? How about an interactive evening edition for the iPad? As media innovation increasingly targets an on-demand culture, these were among the projects that attracted interest at the 13th International Symposium on Online Journalism (ISOJ), where hundreds of journalists, media executives, and academics gathered in April to exchange research and ideas about disruptions in journalism and global reactions to them. The conference, hosted by the Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas at the University of Texas at Austin, reliably draws a mix of professional news producers and high-level researchers.

The Sketch Manual Part 1: How & why I moved to Sketch (story, resources and insights) I bet most of you are like me. You have a demanding full time job, maybe a family, maybe other side projects going on. No free time on your hands, not to talk about switching your main design tool. But on the other hand – let’s agree that opportunities need to be taken up on if you think that you could benefit from them in the future. I think there are still a lot of designers out there afraid to make the big move, but are curious as to how to carry it out. Tool: MULTIMEDIA STORYTELLING - How to find a form that fits the content How to find a form that fits the content There is a form that suits every element of a story best – no matter if you're telling your story in print or online.

In this first video, I show how to grab parts of a web page (scraping) using Google Docs Spreadsheets and XPath. Google Spreadsheets has a nice function called importXML which will read in a web page. You can then apply an XPath to that page, to grab various parts of it, such as one particular value, or all of the hyperlinks. This is a convenient method, as your data will be in a format that is easily downloadable in Excel. Watch the video here:

Futures Lab Update #112: Digital Story Formats That Add Context and History This week we explore a publishing platform that integrates story components in a unique way, and a startup that organizes news reports around historical context. A Web-based publishing platform developed at the MIT Media Lab arranges related elements in a visual way that puts multimedia material into view alongside the text. Co-creator Alexis Hope tells us how the two-dimensional structure is enabling some experiments with storytelling.Reporting by Daniel Shapiro.

Introduction to behavioral economics Just days ago, President Obama issued this executive order: A growing body of evidence demonstrates that behavioral science insights -- research findings from fields such as behavioral economics and psychology about how people make decisions and act on them -- can be used to design government policies to better serve the American people. So just what is behavioral economics? Well, if you're working on problems that involve people making decisions, you better at least know the basics. (And let's be serious... if a problem doesn't involve human behavior, is it even a problem???) Let's dive in...

Solved: Re: Percentage formatting for calculated measures ... - Microsoft Power BI Community @HarrisMalik, OK, I just went back and confirmed this, I was able to put both a colum and a measure into a table (not multi-row card or card) and they both worked and had % displayed versus the decimal. Are you on the December update of Power BI? Are there any language packs involved? You could always send a frowny face to support from the Desktop and ask them what is going on. Something is definitely off because I cannot replicate your issue. So, not sure if this will help, but my formula for Winning Percentage, a caculated measure is:

Intro to Data Mashing and Mapping with Google Fusion Tables Note: This was originally intended to be a short tutorial for students in my Data Journalism class that would be both a primer for basic data mashing concepts and a practical walkthrough for the latest iteration of Google Fusion Tables. Here’s the visual summary for this very long tutorial: We will start with this spreadsheet of New York Health Dept. inspections… …And produce this interactive map (Note: This is just a non-interactive screenshot; Visit the full interactive page is here) If you’re new to data analysis and visualization, this guide is (hopefully) for you. It covers the most recent overhaul of Google Fusion Tables in 2013 but the concepts are meant to be universal. Data Visualization Review: Gephi, Free Graph Exploration Software I do not often get to play with networks, yet I find them fascinating and full of knowledge gathering potential. The data visualization works of Moritz Stefaner, Jer Thorp, and Mark Lombardi captivate me. I am intrigued by relationships, how we perceive them, and how we can understand them. Gephi, the "Open Graph Viz Platform", is not just for the hobbiest node nerd.

Measures in Power BI Desktop Measures in Power BI Desktop Power BI Desktop helps you create insights into your data with just a few clicks. But sometimes that data just doesn’t include everything you need to answer some of your most important questions. Measures can help you get there. Measures are used in some of the most common data analysis; for example, sums, averages, minimum or maximum values, counts, or more advanced calculations you create yourself using a DAX formula. iLab: Immersive Visualization Lab Recent years have seen rapid growth in new media technology that is redefining how media content is acquired or created, modified and displayed. Perhaps the most significant of these technologies are the ones that can present truly 3-dimensional content that enable viewers to experience stories in a truly immersive way. Over the last few months, as a faculty fellow at the Reynolds Journalism Institute, Bimal Balakrishnan from Architectural Studies and his team of graduate students affiliated with the iLab have created a database of 3-D technologies that have potential applications for journalism and other professions. This database attempts to capture both recent technologies as well as more established ones from a variety of disciplines including architecture and entertainment industry.
