Secrecy for Sale: Unravelling the Panama Papers by Hamish Boland-Rudder
7 days ago
Imagine you have just been handed an immense amount of leaked information that could change the world. How do you navigate the data, how do you locate the important details and form them into a story for the general public?
The Panama Papers were a milestone event in data journalism and mobile collaboration. When the Panama Papers were leaked to a German newspaper they realised the volume of data they had been given was immense. They called on the help of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, and soon 107 media companies from over 80 countries were working on the data.
Hamish Boland-Rudder is the online editor of ICIJ. In this talk he reveals how the Panama Papers investigation was done and how they turned scores of leaked data into a visually engaging, searchable system for journalists to explore.
