The Guardian Developer blog is going to be hosting December’s “Carnival of journalism.” Once a month a group of people interested in the future of journalism get together and write blog posts about the same topic, chosen by a different host each time. Previous topics have included using new tools and gadgets, the role of online video in the newsroom, Google+ and a carnival of #fail.
How does it work?
You can join the Carnival of Journalism by filling out this form. Or have a look at the Google Group. Simply write and publish a blog post on the stated deadline on the topic proposed, and let us know about it by leaving a comment below. We’ll then feature you in round-up blog post the week after the deadline, also on this blog.
With it being December, we thought we would adopt a Christmas theme for this month’s topic – and pick something, in keeping with being hosted by a Developer blog, that we could ask of both technologists and journalists.
If you are a journalist, what would be the best present from programmers and developers that Santa Claus could leave under your Christmas tree?
And, correspondingly, if you are a programmer or developer, what would be the best present from journalism that Father Christmas could deliver down your chimney?
Carnival day next month is going to be Friday 9 December – so get thinking about the topic, publish your blog post on the day, and pop a link into the comments below.
