Our ebook 8,000 Holes: How the 2012 Olympic Torch Relay Lost its Way has now been published in the Kindle store. All proceeds go to the Brittle Bone Society. Tell your friends – or gift it!
Over at the Online Journalism Blog I’ve written three posts on the background to the investigation into the Olympic torch relay which resulted in a number of national, local and international stories, and the ebook 8,000 Holes.
- Part one outlines some of the data journalism processes involved
- Part 2 explains how verification, SEO and ‘passive aggressive newsgathering’ played a role.
- Part 3 looks at how ebooks offered a new opportunity to tell the story in depth – and publish while the story was still topical.
Details unearthed by the ongoing investigation have been picked up by a range of national
and local newspapers and broadcast outlets.?
We are still unearthing leads, so if you want to get involved let me know.
