So lately I’ve been super busy, with a half-written blog post about The Social Network just sitting in my drafts, but I completely forgot to mention something even more important (I know: More important than that?!): I’ve recently had my work features all over the place!
Most of it is due to a part-time position I’ve taken as web producer for the New England Center for Investigative Reporting as their web producer. It’s been a fantastic experience and really pushed my web skills. Each month, I’m creating an interactive package to go alongside their hard hitting news stories. This past month, I did an interactive map that let Massachusetts residents see where construction sites falling deaths occurred, and the fines attached to those deaths.
I was also profiled by the Nieman Lab for the FOIA work MuckRock is doing. I’ve been a fanboy of Nieman Lab for as long as I’ve known it’s been around, and I think I actually passed out the first time I met Joshua Benton, so it was a very surreal, very excellent experience seeing myself quoted by them.
