With gay marriage sure to spark emotional responses, The Washington Post and New York Times try structuring comments » Nieman Journalism Lab
As news organizations try to figure out better ways to benefit from their audiences — ways that go beyond an unstructured “What do you think?” — these efforts from the Post and the Times are welcome. Big stories that generate big emotion deserve custom treatment if you want to get the most of your readers. Comments are just another kind of content, and as content becomes more intelligently structured, comments should follow suit.

Data journalism – shorthand for coping with information abundance | Martin Moore
Data journalism is shorthand for being able to cope with information abundance. It is not just about numbers. Neither is it about being a mathmo or a techie. It means being able to combine three things: individual human intelligence, networked intelligence, and computing power.

Five personal ONA10 highlights – Patrick Cooper: Greetings from Evanston, Ill.
The opening Portrait Gallery reception was great. The "Is Patch evil?" question was classic. The SND bar fundraiser was a win. The food and drinks were well above average. The awards gave NPR three trophies. Josh Hatch and Amy Eisman raised the bar this year for Online News Association annuals, and Boston had its work cut out for itself in '11.

Coal-Fired Power Plants - Water Pollution - The New York Times
As coal-burning power plants have reduced their air emissions, many have created another problem: water pollution. While some regulators have used laws like the Clean Water Act to combat pollution, many plants have repeatedly violated that law without incurring fines. The New York Times has compiled data from the Environmental Protection Agency on coal-fired plants with permits to discharge pollutants, including factories that generate their own power.

From a graph design perspective, the execution is very clean. Data labels are limited to the first and last values. A small multiples concept is used with the ethnic groups placed side by side.
