  1. Five Years in News Nerd Careers

    A state-of-the-community roundtable to celebrate Source’s anniversary

    Posted on

    Marking our five-year anniversary with a community roundtable on what’s changed since we launched.

  2. Building Better Story Formats for Live Coverage

    What we’re using and testing, from live blogs to mobile alerts

    Posted on

    Live coverage is a big challenge for newsrooms. It sits at the intersection of high stress moments and production-intensive story forms. We use a variety of tools to help us with breaking news, but they’re typically not forms we use day to day. And on top of that, we still need to think about improvements and new ways to reach our readers. SRCCON 2017 provided a unique opportunity for us to discuss the pros and cons of story forms we use for breaking news and live coverage.

  3. Just One Thing: A Year in Review, Part 2

    Appreciation of usefulness and bar-raising at the end of a long, complicated year

    Posted on

    As we did last year, we’ve asked a couple of dozen people from all around the news-nerd community to tell us about one thing—article, feature, app, tool, or something else entirely—that they loved in 2015. This week, we’re publishing their responses, from interactives to project management software. We hope you find here at least one thing that eases your work, inspires new angles on your stories, and helps carry you through to 2016.

  5. Better Analytics for Newsrooms with GADash

    An in-progress project from the NYT’s Interactive News Team

    Posted on

    At the New York Times, the Interactive News team wants to build tools that make the world of analytics more accessible to newsroom teams. Earlier this year, members of the team began working on Google Analytics Dashboard (GADash), an app-specific display of key figures, traffic patterns, and charts for some of our custom story presentations, as well as general page reports.

  6. Unlearning

    How rigorous self-assessment can transform your perspective

    Posted on

    As with most of our well-meant advice, we tend to target people at the heights or depths of mindsets—in this case, you on your career path. We don’t do as earnest a job of giving constructive advice for people in the middle, those metaphorically on a plateau or simply soldiering up a small hill.

  7. Surviving the News Business

    Burnout, self-care, and human-tested tactics for staying okay at work

    Posted on

    While each organization’s culture varies, aggressive deadlines, multi-tasking, and long hours are considered hallmarks of journalism. You can repeat that exact paragraph about the tech industry as well. If you combine them, as many of us do each day, you get something like a three-dimensional chess board of stressors, deadlines, and shifting ground.
