Innovative journalism

Among the finalists for the Knight-Batten Awards for Innovations in Journalism, some really interesting stuff, including work by a news researcher, Derek Willis, who compiled congressional votes for an online database set up on by Adrian Holovaty: Congressional Votes Database.

Also in the list: Global Voices Online, which compiles news and blog postings from around the world; IBISEYE, from the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, which tracks hurricane probabilities;, a look at news coverage of health issues from a journalism prof; and Transparent Newsroom, where The Spokane Spokesman-Review posts webcasts of the daily editors' meeting.

I've posted about all of these previously, but there are some other worthy finalists too.

BTW, Derek points out a new journalism school blog about public records, which could be useful: News Reporting and Public Records, from Cory Armstrong at UF. Note the post called journalists love news researchers.
