Слайд 48

Questions Is the data clean? Is the data representative? What biases might be hidden in the data? Was the data legally obtained? Does the data contain personally identifiable information (PII)?


Слайд 49

Collection Who gathered the data? How? Was it clear how data would be used? Can people opt-out of collection or usage? “Notice and consent” is not enough “Privacy by design” applies to news apps

Create your data “If Stage 1 of data journalism was “find and scrape data,” then… Stage 2 was “ask government agencies to release data” in easy to use formats. Stage 3 is going to be “make your own data”, and those sources of data are going to be automated and updated in real-time.” -Javaun Moradi, Mozilla
