'Computational Journalism'

Now this sounds like a cool course at Georgia Tech, Computational Journalism:

In this class we will explore themes such as (a) storytelling in the context of news, (b) sense-making from diverse news information sources, (c) the impact of more and cheaper networked sensors (d) collaborative human models for information aggregation and sense-making, (e) mashups and the use of programming in journalism, (f) the impact of mobile computing and data gathering, (g) computational approaches to information quality, (h) data mining for personalization and aggregation, (i) authoring and broadcasting, and (j) citizen journalism.

And here's the course blog.

I dunno -- if I were back in j-school I think I'd avoid this one like the plague!

Daunting, yes. But I'd pay attention to it -- and to where it is being offered and in what context. These are the people you may be working for in a few years. (Think Bill Gates, Larry Page, Sergey Brin ...)
