The Data Journalism Handbook

I found this post by Michael Blastland on The Guardian's DataBlog to be refreshing. It's good to see a collaborative international venture aimed at encouraging high quality data presentation and interpretation by journalists.

The Data Journalism Handbook was launched today, and it's a free open-source reference book.
