PoynterOnline has a great story about a joint project between The New York Times and ProPublica called DocumentCloud. “DocumentCloud will provide an online database of documents contributed by a consortium of news organizations, watchdog groups and bloggers, and shared with the public at large. The service will make important investigative documents more transparent and easier to find. Contributors will be able to annotate documents and create relationships that aren’t evident through simple text searches.”
This is a great example of how interactive media is used in journalism.
