Morning booster: Don't be numbed by numbers
A lot of data projects deliver numbers for us to put in our stories – but too many numbers or statistics will kill your audience’s interest. When it comes to using numbers in stories there are some definite things to avoid – in this interactive session, Jonathan Stoneman will go through the key things to think about when putting numbers in your stories.

Morning booster: Who is really, really behind a website
Websites look like they’re designed to make information available to the public. However, valuable information is hiding behind what you see in your browser. Sometimes it is important to research hidden data: to identify the individuals or companies that own a domain name or to dig up content that it once contained but that has since been removed. Learn the most important methods and tools.

Morning booster: What every journalist must know about GDPR
GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) was put into force in May 2018. It also applies to media and journalists. Freedom of expression – including a free and independent press – are important in a healthy democracy. Media organisations must therefore be able to process personal data when producing journalistic content, where there is a public interest in doing so. Data protection laws recognise this by including specific rules that help balance the right to privacy with the right to freedom of expression. One of the most important new rights GDPR offers to individuals is a right to be forgotten (right to erasure). How does this right apply to media? In this lecture we will also discuss the jurisprudence od European courts regarding this right.

Morning booster: Stalking ourselves professionally - 1
Investigating personal details is part of many stories, and we have seen presentations on what is feasible in many ways - starting with usernames, pics, phone numbers, mail addresses, names etc. But what else is feasible? When designing research challenges, Oliver and Marcus gave students some personal data to dig into. So the snapshot of a pet can lead to a home address; the combination of small details can even lead further. So we started to search for more and found personal data where we had not expected it. Old e-mail addresses we almost had forgotten etc. From there we turned the experiment into a lesson: What strategies can we develop from here?
