Nearly every time the data team at Project Thunderdome prepared to launch an interactive graphic, a CAR story, or a news app, I’d say to myself something along the lines of, “As soon as this hits production, we’ll go back and beef up the inline documentation to save ourselves headaches the next time we try something like this.”

Of course, despite our best intentions, we never went back until so much time had passed that we’d completely forgotten just about everything we had tried to do.
