It’s time of #TryItTuesday, where the goal is to encourage you (yes, YOU) to try just one thing as you continue your digital journalism journey.


Today’s try-it is FOIA Machine, which allows users to automate their Freedom of Information Act requests. It also allows users to track the progress of requests, keep efforts organized, set reminders for yourself and more. It was created by The Center for Investigative Reporting and successfully funded through a $50,000 Kickstarter campaign.

Please feel free to share your tools!
