What online journalists can learn from information scientists

“I recently took part in a fascinating ‘unconference‘ in Seattle aimed at information professionals of various stripes — librarians, information architects, interaction designers and the like. It’s called InfoCamp, and it seems like a natural venue for online journalists too — though there were few in attendance. The sessions covered such familiar topics as information visualization and user-created content, but from a broader perspective than we journalists usually look. This got me thinking: Why should there such a gap between the information gatherers (us) and the information organizers (them)?” (Eric UlkenDe Nieuwe Reporter.nl)
