Ray Daly of The Washington Post has been writing JavaScript since the 1990s. In May, he spoke at JSConf about “JavaScript journalism” — the idea that just as it took some time for photojournalism to be respected as a distinct field, it’s now proper to define JavaScript journalism as its own thing, a field ready to stand alongside the other prefixes journalists attach to their job titles.

(He stands up for JavaScript in particular — arguing that The New York Times’ Pulitzer for Snow Fall should have credited “its deft integration of JavaScript” rather than “its deft integration of multimedia elements.”)

Video of his talk was just posted to YouTube. His slides are here (using Hakim El Hattab’s lovely Reveal.js to format the presentation).

Welcome to GDPR: Here are the data privacy notices publishers are showing their Europe-based readers
We’re seeing what publishers have decided to implement on their websites as of May 25 — whether they’ve decided to block European Union and European Economic Area-based traffic outright, set up buckets of consent for readers to click through, or done something simpler (or nothing new at all).
What is it that journalism studies is studying these days? A lot about newsrooms, less about everybody else in the news ecosystem
Also, has the “fake news” moment already passed for academics?
Is your fake news about immigrants or politicians? It all depends on where you live
Plus: Facebook is accepting proposals for fake news research, and fake news was growing as a topic of media discussion even before the U.S. presidential election.
