- Announcing Quackbot, a Slack bot for journalists from Quartz and DocumentCloud
- The importance of tone and personality in mobile storytelling
In its first version, Quackbot can do a select few tricks that might prove handy in a modern newsroom, from grabbing screenshots of webpages to pointing out clichés. But we’re excited to collaborate with the rest of the journalism world to give Quackbot many more skills over time. Think of it as a fully hosted and friendly interface to open-source tools.
