The foundation believes that democracy thrives when people and communities are informed and engaged.
The centerpiece of the OpenNews program, the Knight-Mozilla Fellowships, sponsored by Knight Foundation, embeds developers and technologists in newsrooms around the world to spend a year writing code in collaboration with reporters, designers, and newsroom developers.
Fellows work in the open by sharing their code and their discoveries on the web, helping to strengthen and build journalism's toolbox.
Embedded in the Newsroom
The Knight-Mozilla Fellows are able to experience the day-to-day energy of some of the best newsrooms in the world.
Being present as news breaks, writing code for the day's headlines, and taking a step back to solve real-world journalistic problemsets, the Knight-Mozilla Fellows' work is as real-world as it gets.
Working in the Open
Knight-Mozilla Fellows share the work they're doing with the world outside of the newsroom.
By blogging their experiences, pushing code to open repositories, taking part in the OpenNews community calls, and engaging with other developers, the Knight-Mozilla Fellows are helping to spread the code they're making and strengthen the journalism-developer community.
