Chile: Expand Poderopedia, a Site Linking Business and Politics, Across the Region
Knight International Journalism Fellow Miguel Paz is speeding the development and use of the Knight News Challenge-winning platform Poderopedia, which reveals links among business and political leaders. He is bringing Poderopedia to Venezuela and to other nations, creating a cross-border community that uses the platform. He is introducing customized versions of Poderopedia in newsrooms and civic media projects. Paz is also developing PeriodismoDeDatos.org, a much-needed Spanish data journalism toolkit and online community for sharing code, expertise and training resources. He is expanding Hacks/Hackers Santiago and working with this community to launch new chapters in Latin America. He is holding “radiothons” to introduce innovations in newsgathering and distribution developed in Africa that can be used by Latin American community radio.
