I am participating in the inaugural Nikkei-FT fellowship programme in San Francisco, from March to May 2017. During the fellowship, I will be exploring:
How can we create a need for news by igniting curiosity? How can we make the FT a place that sparks new enquiry, instead of one that just answers our readers questions?
How can journalism encourage exploration, particularly through the use of digital technologies including interactivity and rirtual reality?
How do we tell stories that create emotional understanding and empathy?
What does it mean for games to be journalism? Is interactive non-fiction an oxymoron?
I will be chronicling what I've learnt in this section. A good place to start is this post, where I lay out my case for why these are important questions.
