At the same time, we will provide human resources, such as trained investigative editors to work with trained journalists, ingraining their skills and commitment to investigative work. We also will offer material resources, such as small grants and investigative fellowships, including not only funds, but technical assistance and mentorship, to invigorate a much-needed media vanguard for our open-data movement and help it on its way.
