20 new projects are awarded $35,000 Knight Prototype Fund grants

NiemanLab reporting:
Each project will receive $35,000 in funding. Many of the journalistically minded projects are focused on the areas of audience engagement or improving data accessibility.NPR visuals editor Brian Boyer is leading the development of Carebot, a tool that aims to change “how newsrooms measure and celebrate success by measuring the things that actually matter: Did people complete the story? What proportion shared it? Did we make them care?” Vocativ, meanwhile, is building Dataproofer, an app that helps reporters ascertain the quality of a data set before they begin reporting on it. Interactive producer Gerald Rich is leading the development of that project.
