El Mundo's infographics get a nice shout-out

I've just finished Making News at The New York Times, an ethnography in which GWU's Nikki Usher describes a newsroom struggling to change and adapt. If you've read the NYT’s famous (and leaked) innovation report and this other from Duke University, the main themes in Usher's book will sound familiar. Among them, the increasing relevance and visibility of the graphics, interactive, multimedia, and data projects.

On a personal note, I was happy to see that my ex-colleagues at El Mundo's online infographics team (David Alameda, Miguel Nuño, Juan Carlos Sánchez) got a nice shout-out on page 162 thanks to their coverage of the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. Well deserved!
