How PageOneX goes

PageOneX newsletter: All you need to now for the fall

This post is the newsletter that is sent to all the subscribers and people at the PageOneX users’ list.

Here is a compilation of all the things related to PageOneX that had happened in the past weeks. From now on, I hope I can make this more often.

Feaured threads

There have been good threads on PageOneX recently. I list here some of them:

Live at http://pProtesters or Vandals? How the traditional media approached Brazilian protests in June 2013 by Débora Leal.
Thread available at PageOnex: Violence x Protest

How 3 Colombian newspapers covered the agricultural strike? My analysis with @pageonex (in Spanish) by @Amelrame.
Based in the thread in PageOneX: Análisis Paro Agrario.
La crisis de Pescanova en la prensa gallega
The collapse of Pescanova in Galizian newsapers
by @mcshuibhne.

He analyses how the local newspapers from the Galicia, a region in Spain covered the collapse of the food company, debt of €3.6bn. I found interesting how he used the tool: highlighting in red the absence of coverage on the topic, and then classifying by type of heading (importance by h1, h2, h3). The percentage of surface is not useful in this case.
Based in the thread in PageOneX Pescanova.

PageOneX development

We changed the license of the code to a GNU AGPL v3, that suits better a web app like PageOneX, after the suggestion by a user related to the GNU project.

Some folks are trying to make their own PageOneX deployment in Heroku or elsewhere. We included an installation guide in the wiki and how to do it in Heroku. thanks to David Cabo for he advice.

There had been a lot of small improvements to make the tool more robust. Check the commits! With Edward L. Platt and Rahul Bhargava, from the Center of Civic Media, we keep fixing bugs.

There was an interesting article/interview in, a Spanish online newspaper, on PageOneX: Analyzing newspaper discourse with free software (Spanish) by @PauLlop.

PageOneX was featured in Euskadi Innova a public website for innovation in the Basque Country.

There was a post on PageOneX for the 6th congress on Research on Information and Communication in Madrid, Spain.
