Mozilla and the Knight Foundation have partnered on a three-year initiative to bring new forms of technical innovation into newsrooms around the world. Through this program, 15 Knight-Mozilla fellows will spend a year making software in organizations like Al Jazeera English, BBC,, Guardian, and Zeit Online. Join us to find out what we’ve learned along the way, and how you can get involved.
