Problem: Journalists often don’t have access to programmers who can help them build searchable web databases, and are often stuck behind inflexible CMSs.
Solution: +Len De Groot and I built FreeDive, a CMS-independent web-based tool that lets journalists transform Google Spreadsheets into sortable, searchable modules that can be dropped into any web page.
FreeDive was the last big project I worked on at KDMC before moving on – incredibly proud to see its official launch today!

It is a great tool, Scott. Thanks, I built two databases of standardized test scores, already.
