Kevin Anderson of The Guardian cites four principles of digital news development in his Corante blog post.
1. Journalists high and low on the food chain need to know about software development.
2. Newsrooms need to build reusable digital elements.
3. Thinking interactivity isn't always a technological challenge.
4. Strategic projects require long-term vision.
His post is insightful on the Guardian's approach and on guides for other newsrooms.
