Collaboration in the newsroom…

Here’s a fascinating project that demonstrates how quickly newsrooms are changing: It’s called “Not Just A Number.”

This is a fabulous project that combines community journalism, digital media, and plain old fashioned beat reporting. It was done by the Oakland Tribune. They hired a documentary filmmaker and a photgrapher who teamed up with their reporter and web team. Last week, it won the Knight Community Service award at the Online News Awards (which is kind of like the Pulitzers for online). But it’s also an inspiring piece of work that points to the growing range of skills journalists need to have and how important collaboration will be.
