Journalism in the Age of Data [stanford.edu] is a must-see documentary of about 54 minutes, 'starring' some of the most talented and well-known data visualization practitioners of today. The covered topics are wide, but include contemporary issues like Visualization in Journalism, Telling "Data Stories", Exploring Data or Technology and Tools. It was produced during the U.S. Knight Journalism Fellowship by Geoff McGhee, titled "Documenting emerging uses of data visualization".

Expect to see interviews with or about (in alphabetical order) BBC News, Nicholas Felton, Ben Fry, Google, Jeff Heer, Nigel Holmes, Jonathan Jarvis, Aaron Koblin, MSNBC, The New York Times Graphics Division (e.g. Stephen Duenes and "Queen of Infovis" Amanda Cox), The Wall Street Journal, Eric Rodenbeck (Stamen Design), Fernanda Viegas and Martin Wattenberg, and many many more...

One thing I could not stop noticing while watching: the twinkle in people's eyes while they talk about their work...

You raise many queries in my thoughts; you wrote an excellent article, but this articlee is also thought provoking, and I am going to need to ponder it a bit more; I will be back soon.
