Propublica is trying to make crowdsourcing more meaningful. This goes hand in hand with the engagement conversation we had yesterday in class. (The article comes from Neiman.)

Journalism.co.uk named ProPublica’s TimelineSetter as its tool of the week
Tool of the week: ProPublica’s TimelineSetter
What is it? A tool for creating beautiful interactive timelines.
How is it of use to journalists? Having spent time developing a timeline tool, US investigative journalism news site ProPublica has made the code available for others to use, enabling journalists to build interactive timelines from a spreadsheet.
ProPublica’s timeline on how one blast affected five soldiers is a clear demonstration as to just how effective the tool can be in online storytelling.
The LA Times and Chicago Tribune are among those who have utilised the open source software since it was made public in April 2011.


Who will be the first in this class to try this tool?
