OJR: Lessons learnt from time at the LA Times data desk

Former LA Times interactive technology editor, Eric Ulken, looks at lessons learnt from building the newspaper’s ‘data desk: ‘a cross-functional team of journalists responsible for collecting, analyzing and presenting data online and in print’.

Eric Ulken’s next assignment: the online world, from around the world

The LA Times interactive technology editor Eric Ulken is off to trot the globe, after ten years working in newspapers.

“Now I hope to effect change from the outside”, he writes.

“Earlier this month, I left my job as interactive technology editor at the Los Angeles Times to travel and learn and share stories about the great work taking place in online journalism around the world. I love the Times, my work and my colleagues, but I’ve decided it’s time to try something new: reporting.”
