If you had any doubt over the concept of ‘programmer as journalist’, that quote above from The Guardian’s liveblog of the opening of the COINS database gives you a preview of things to come. While you’re at it, you might as well add in ‘statistician as journalist‘ and ‘information designer as journalist‘ – or look at my post from 2008 on New Journalists for New Information Flows. Are we there yet?
