    Posted on

    Journalists spend a lot of time with data, sometimes that data is even about themselves. Last year, over 500 “news nerds”—the developers, designers, editors, data analysts, and product folks who work with tech and journalism every day—told us about their teams, newsrooms, and what would help them in this work. The results helped shape our work at Source and OpenNews, and folks found it so useful that we’ve brought it back as an annual News Nerd Survey.
