Last year was amazing for me. After two years at NextBigWhat, I moved back to The Economic Times.
The idea is to work on some good stories, some great stories and focus a lot on writing. I’ll try to break news, write features and hopefully pass a comment or two about the tech & internet scene in India.
There are some very talented and highly accomplished journalists in the newsroom right now and I’m happy that I get to spend some time with them.
I’ll also be working with a team that’s bringing out a brilliant web product for the paper (more about that later). This is even more exciting for me personally as it offers a great opportunity to learn and experiment.
I’m excited about how this blog is shaping up. In the last month or so, traffic has increased steadily. The site is now hosted on a stable server and I’ve become more regular with posts (one a week). I hope that 10000hacks becomes a hub for journalists to share lessons and ideas (if you’d like to contribute, please drop in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org).
I also helped organize a data journalism workshop for a small group of people. This year, I’d love to do more of that.
I couldn’t ask for more, but like always, I will. Here’s to a great year gone by and a great year ahead!
