Do Journos’ need to be techno geeks?

 

Charles Arthur (who follows technology at the Guardian) and various blogs including Mark Briggs both ephasise how coding is a vital part of modern-day journalism. This doesn’t mean you have to be a techno geek but a vague knowledge of the programes and software is vital. With technological advances, coding will become more important than ever. This combines a different section of multi-platform delivery as technology competent journalists evolve.

Will this be us in a couple years?!

  1. I think that a basic knowledge of how the hardware and software works is necessary, just to be really able to speak of it to the masses.
