Using Twitter as Your Database
Instead of building our own system, we asked reporters to post their updates to Twitter and use hashtags to associate each update with a race. Then we used the Twitter API (via John Nunemaker’s Ruby gem) to fetch updates for each page.

10 free and totally legal programs every multimedia journalist should have
While some of the top flight bits of kit: Adobe After Effects, Final Cut Studio and the like are still priced at hundreds of dollars, there are a growing number of cheaper or even free alternatives.
