Workshop: Password for Investigative Reporting

        The Internet has transformed the world, and that includes the news media. Its benefit is the immense amount of data available. Its drawback is accuracy, plus difficulties about piecing together all the data. Now, you have the chance to beta-test a new database of who's who and what's what in Hong Kong affairs.

        Enigma contains over 28,000 names, including all listed company directors, statutory and advisory body members, legislative and district councillors, JPs, Bauhinia winners and even relatives.

        Mr. Webb will give HKJA members an exclusive preview of the database, and provide a secret login password for those who wish to try it and provide feedback on how to make it even more useful for journalists. He will also talk about his investigative work on
