Arresting (App) Developments

If you haven’t seen it and you’re a fan of the Arrested Development series, you have to head over to NPR’s web site to see this insane, inside-joke app they created.

Then, head over to the Poynter Institute where Andrew Beaujon has interviewed it’s creator, Adam Cole, who says it started as a bit of a hobby project.

And for all those university kids who think their science classes aren’t very helpful, I give you this excerpt:

(Cole’s) schoolwork in biology came in handy: “My undergraduate thesis was about mussel beds, so I was very used to filling out endless spreadsheets with data.”

Journalism uses everything it can to tell a story – cameras, lenses, pens and spreadsheets.
