Knight News Challenge winners

They are naming the winners of the first Knight News Challenge today, so take a look.

That list includes The Blog's Mercury News colleague Chris O'Brien, who will be helping his alma mater, Duke University, with some cool newsroom rethinking about preparing for a converged future.

Another winner, Adrian Holovaty of washingtonpost.com, will be a speaker for a session at SND Boston called "Making Data Webby," where he shares philosophy and strategies for making data browsable online. He'll touch on several of his past projects, including chicagocrime.org and Faces of the Fallen, plus we bet he will talk about this new Knight project. Yet another reason to be in Boston this fall.

Kudos to Adrian, Chris and everyone else who will be trying to see new news solutions.
