The NYT’s One-In-8-Million Series

In addition to being a fabulous body of storytelling what gets me about this series is that’s it’s so simply obvious:  Profile regular people. Give them a voice (literally). Show their faces. Take us into their worlds.

This is a recipe that can/should be emulated by other news organizations and will certainly play a role in my fall’s class. It’s inspirational all-around.

A great q-and-a by the team telling folks how the series is put together.
