1 TechRaking with David Cohn April 29, 2012 04/29

A few weeks ago David Cohn helped organize an event at Google called TechRaking. That day, so many conversations involved the notion that journalists are different than technologists because journalists don’t have a culture of failing publicly to improve. So, that’s what we’re going to try to do on this podcast — talk about how digital journalism fails. Of course we’ll talk about the successes as well, but there is no great project that doesn’t have a boatload of fail in its wake.
