This post has two purposes: (1) To present an example of interactive journalism that I recommend; and (2) To allow you to reply with a new link to an example of interactive journalism that YOU recommend.
It is optional for you to post a link. If you do, it counts toward extra credit (provided it meets the criteria). You can read the details on the Required Work page, under the subheading “Extra credit.” See previous example posts by clicking the Examples link in the sidebar.
Your link and reply must meet the requirements spelled out on the Required Work page.
My example for you this week — Here’s Where Your iPhone Got Lost Or Stolen — is NOT interactive, but it shows you how a journalist used Python to collect data (from Craigslist) and then write a totally original story, with charts. (Your examples still need to be interactive ones.) The charts here could be more beautiful, in my opinion. But the story’s the thing, and the reporter got this story with Python.
BONUS: The journalist, Nicole Martinelli, wrote a separate account of how she used Python to get these data.
