The term “open journalism,” which has become a core principle of digital media for forward-thinking outlets such as The Guardian newspaper in Britain, is often used to mean journalism that engages with its audience (or “the people formerly known as the audience” as Jay Rosen calls them) and allows them to contribute to the process. But the idea of opening up journalism is also about what media companies can do beyond just producing articles or facts for people to consume — and a big part of that is opening up the data behind their stories.
