    Data, data, everywhere, and quite a lot to drink in.

    The Global Editors Network, has launched the , a new online community focused on spotlighting good data-driven journalism and datasets and connecting data journalists for news stories, advice, and even jobs. The Den is open in beta now, and its .

    Building on its active , where it hosts monthly speaker series for anyone in the Slack, the Den is trying to facilitate more active collaborations and more frequent discussions between journalists. Its “Matchmaking” section will allow Den members to request feedback on projects, submit calls for partners, or even ask for funding.

    “When people think of collaborative journalism these days, they think of these big projects like the Panama Papers or the Paradise Papers, where you have hundreds of journalists working together across different countries. That’s a big project to manage,” of GEN, who was brought on to oversee the project, told me when we spoke ahead of the launch. “We’d like to be able to facilitate many smaller collaborations. Data journalists can go on our site for a project they’d like to create, but maybe don’t have the resources available for. They can specify what kind of needs they have, from manpower to skills to assistance to funding.”

    The Hub will also offer a regular email newsletter that will pull together examples of good data journalism being done around the world, as well as surface new tools, data-related services, and insightful discussions around data reporting happening elsewhere online.

    There are plans for a “data store,” modeled in part on ProPublica’s data shop, where it sells valuable datasets. A lot of work often goes into putting together and cleaning a dataset, which may combine several different sources, and the dataset could still be useful to a wider community of data journalists after the original set of news stories based off the data have been published.

    A jobs section is also forthcoming.

    The project is supported in part by . You can join and read more about the Den .

    A new proposed law would turn drone journalism into a swarm of lawsuits and make it easy to sue over news photography
    Imagine if a news photographer at a football game had to get permission from every single person in the stadium before taking a single shot — or else face hundreds of civil lawsuits. That’s what new model legislation wants to bring to public airspace.
    Three multi-billion-dollar companies dominate the Chinese internet landscape, from news media to AI
    Plus: WeChat now has 1.04 billion monthly active users, shortform video is booming, and a few other significant numbers out of a recent report on the state of the Chinese internet landscape.
    Facebook might downrank the most vile conspiracy theories. But it won’t take them down.
    Plus: (Some) researchers can now get access to (some) Facebook data, WhatsApp is funding misinformation research too, and susceptibility to fake news may have more to do with laziness than partisanship.
