De cómo dejé de preocuparme y empecé a interesarme en el periodismo de datos

Hace muchos años, no mucho tiempo después de la caída del muro de Berlín, pasé un invierno de tardes grises en los archivos de la Stasi (la policía secreta de Alemania Oriental), investigando historias sobre República Democrática Alemana. Para poder ver un documento, primero tenías que ver si el archivo existía (no había índice). Después, tenías que demostrar que realmente lo necesitabas (como periodista, esto significaba tener un bosquejo de tu artículo).

How I learned to stop worrying and love data journalism

Many years ago, not long after the fall of the Berlin Wall, I spent a winter of long gray afternoons in the archives of the Stasi (the East German secret police), researching stories about the former German Democratic Republic. In order to view a document, you first had to know that it existed (there was no available index). Then you had to prove a need for it (as a journalist this meant providing a story outline). Then you waited weeks to months for an appointment in the reading room of the former Stasi offices, which was the only place the documents would be made accessible.
