Django is, for journalists, a great way to show off your data on the web. While working with data is not the sexiest job, it is, for me, partly why this is such an exciting time to be a journalist. Over the next couple of years, we will be moving tons of interesting data out of bureaucratic backrooms and putting it to work in interesting, useful ways. This is a small window of opportunity for some enterprising folks to make their mark on this business.
So carpe diem. Or carpe datum? Is that correct Latin? Who cares! Let[HTML_REMOVED]s get to work.
