Some people drink from the fountain of knowledge, others just gargle. ~ Robert Anthony
Let‘s take a swig with Jan Wyllie. Together with Simon Eaton he has founded The Database of Environmental Change. It‘s a collection of more than 40,000 articles and their headlines about environmental issues. And it‘s growing fast. This is really core journalistic work what they are doing.
This podcast episode has been an experiment of an audio and video version. But that didn‘t work. So I decided to split this episode into three parts:
- First you‘ll hear from Jan Wyllie about his professional background and motivation to work on such a database.
- The second part is a video, where Jan gives us a brief introduction how to use the database tool.
- Then please come back to hear from Jan, how he is dealing with his emotions while he is improving his knowledge about the environmental disaster.
