Just wanted to bring your attention to some news-related projects that launched this week:
Reporters looking for advice from other reporters should take a look at ReportingOn.
The hyperlocal news and data site Everyblock released its source code, much to the delight of Django developers everywhere.
Personally, I’d also like to see the source code for the Everyblock iPhone app, but one thing at a time.
If you want to learn more about mobile site design, consider signing up for W3C’s first-ever live training session in Cambridge, UK.
The event takes place Oct. 13. Registration — at a hefty €399.00 (about US$558 at today’s exchange rate) — includes lectures and hands-on workshops, as well as access to the nine-part course. Read the full description, register online or read more about the W3C Mobile Web Initiative.
Feel free to browse around the blog. A few of the most popular posts on Ricochet include:
