Games lead to great careers in journalism

Sisi Wei is a news apps developer at ProPublica and previously was a graphics editor at The Washington Post. She was one of our fabulous guests at Journalism Interactive here in Gainesville in February.

This blog post (open it!!) links to three Flash games she created while she was an undergrad journalism student at Northwestern. She graduated in June 2011. You can see her resume (PDF).

The point is, making games can teach you a lot! (In spring 2011, we still used Flash. Now we don’t.)
