A recent article reports, “Five coders will help newsrooms innovate and develop prototypes for digitally delivering news and information as the first group of Knight-Mozilla News Technology Fellows. Announced at the Mozilla Festival in London, the fellows will be spending the year in leading newsrooms around the globe, including The Guardian, The Boston Globe, Al Jazeera English, BBC and Zeit Online. Fellows will address a specific issue at each organization and then produce open-source solutions that advance the values of journalism and the open Web.”
John S. Bracken, director of media innovation at Knight Foundation stated, “This first cohort of Knight-Mozilla fellows is an impressive group, and well positioned to add real value – both to their partner news organizations and to the journalism field in genera… At Knight, we see great promise in these intersections of technology and journalism.”
