The 9th International Digital Curation Conference is quickly approaching. The theme of this year’s conference is how data-driven developments are changing the world around us. Paul Lewis answers the question of “What scientific breakthroughs, technical advances or potential new opportunities excite you the most?”

I suppose what really excites me is the possibility of collective action: journalists as a fulcrum, working in a symbiotic relationship with an audience that now has access to source materials, and tools, to help tell stories.
