NERDS!

Whoa. Sorry about that. We got a little worked up after we heard news that ProPublica was launching a new blog, called “Nerd Blog.”

We don’t entirely understand the premise. Something about news applications. “We’re going to be writing about each of our projects as we release them, and flagging open source tools we’ve found useful,” writes ProPublica’s editor of news applications Scott Klein.

Still not sure what that means. Read more about the blog here and perhaps you can explain it to us.

Whatever is going on over there, the Nerd roster will be four people strong, and will include Klein, Krista Kjellman Schmidt, Dan Nguyen and Jeff Larson.
