The last months have been an exciting time. We, the YourDataStories consortium, did not only enjoy the autumn colors but also brought our data-based platform out to shine.

Moving from setup phase to prototyping
Time is passing quickly and YourDataStories (YDS), our research project on making #opendata more accessible and transparent, is already beyond the first year of its three years project duration.
As projects go, the first year was full of first steps: Setting up the consortium, creating the necessary project structures and communication lines as well as establishing a basis for the actual development. Activities ranged from setting up the technical infrastructure to gathering and analysing the main user requirements for the envisioned application.

Short and tweet:
Five tweets from this month you really should have read by now!
We spend a lot of time reading social news from around the web (with Twitter as our main source): On DDJ & Dataviz, storytelling, new technologies, verification, journalistic business processes and so much more.
There is good stuff out our there, and we’d like to share what we found. So every month, we compile a list of five tweets/links, that we think are worth reading and hence sharing here for you to read.

What’s Your Data Story?
Data is everywhere nowadays, from social media to goverment spendings. But how to make sense of it all, how to access the relevant information within?
YourDataStories (YDS) takes a closer look at Open Government Data (OGD) to find a way to make this information easily accessible, understandable, transparent and sharable for everyone.
YDS focuses on methods from data-driven-journalism (#ddj) and data-visualisation (#dataviz), building a solution that allows for easy discovery, analysis and interpretation of #opendata. The aim of the project is to create an ‘interactive canvas’ enabling citizens to write their own data stories and share them across the web.
The development will be driven by three different use cases dealing with public expenditure in Greece and Ireland as well as the spending and effect of development aid from the Netherlands, increasing transparency in these important areas of public interest.
The project runs from February 2015 – January 2018.

With every new trend, interest goes up and down. Only strong trends keep developing and reach new levels of productivity – as generally described in the Gartner Hypecycle. One such trend is „data-driven journalism“. The term became very much talked about over the last years since its appearance in 2010, describing workflows for finding, checking and visualizing data for better (and deeper) reporting.
As this is early 2015 the question is what progress did this specialized form of journalism make in 2014?

What comes to your mind when you think of Brazil? At the moment probably mainly ‘soccer’, right? Same over here. But we do not want to talk about last night’s game, the championship’s top players, live scores or the change of tactics. That will all be covered by our colleagues at DW Sports.
We focus on data driven journalism, visualizations, infographics and innovative storytelling on the web. Check out our collection of projects taking a creative approach at presenting soccer-related data:

Big Data is one of the most overused buzzwords in recent years. So it is about time to give it a reality check and distinguish hype from true value. The Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism and the World Newsmedia Network take on this challenge for the media industry organising a one-day conference headlined “Harnessing the Power of Big Data for Media” on May 8th, 2014 in London.
