The 2015 Computer-Assisted Reporting Conference was an amazing experience. I couldn't attend all the sessions of the multi-track conference, so this doesn't cover everything. This is a selected chunk of things that I found especially interesting.
I run across lots of similar-looking news websites while doing research for my internship at the Progressive Dairyman magazine. A significant portion of these sites all seem to use the same template, with some color and menu changes. Turns out they're all owned by Gannett, so I asked mysef, "What does the average Gannett website look like?"
Twin Falls, Idaho, is my new home for the next five months while I work for Progressive Publishing, writing at the Progressive Dairyman website. I saw a population figure for Twin Falls that was close to that of Ohio State Univeristy's student populace, and figured that I should sit down and churn out a comparison.
