Update (1200ET): In a statement, Bill Gates responded to Warren Buffett's decision to leave the Gates Foundation board by saying he was grateful for all the wisdom and leadership Buffett has shown.
I will always have a deep sense of accountability to Warren, paying close attention to the data to track our progress and identify areas where we can do better. But the value of Warren’s gift goes beyond anything that can be measured.
I am truly grateful for his wisdom and leadership, and most of all for his enduring friendship. Warren will continue to inspire our foundation as we work to fight poverty and help millions of people live healthier lives. https://t.co/qYYl1APURx

It offers a diverse collection of perspectives on how data journalism is done around the world and the broader consequences of datafication in the news, serving as both a textbook and a sourcebook for this emerging field. With more than 50 chapters from leading researchers and practitioners of data journalism, it explores the work needed to render technologies and data productive for journalistic purposes. It also gives a ‘behind the scenes' look at the social lives of datasets, data infrastructures, and data stories in newsrooms, media organizations, startups, civil society organizations and beyond. The book includes sections on ‘doing issues with data', ‘assembling data', ‘working with data', ‘experiencing data', ‘investigating data, platforms and algorithms', ‘organizing data journalism', ‘learning data journalism together' and ‘situating data journalism'.
Phi Beta Iota: Includes data journalism, teaching and training. This is the “high art” that the Mainstream Media (MSM) does not practice. Citizen journalism, while promising, is still in the mob stage and lacks professionalism.
