Nerd Journalism

On Friday I defended my PhD dissertation in Barcelona. Its title is Nerd Journalism: How Data And Digital Technology Transformed News Graphics.

The latest draft still has plenty of errors and typos, and I need to incorporate the feedback from the committee, but if you want to take a look at it —being aware that the final version will likely be different,— it's here. Later this year I'll also publish the data and those video interviews and transcripts authorized by the nearly 40 interviewees.

(Side note, as some friends are already making fun of this in social media: I still believe that the only true Dr. Alberto Cairo is the famous Italian medical doctor who for many years saved lives in Afghanistan.)
