-<p><a href="/fellowships/2013meet.html">Meet the 2012 Fellows</a>
+<p>Knight-Mozilla Fellows work on projects with their newsroom colleagues, with each other, with new friends at hack days, and sometimes, yes, in an over-caffienated blur alone at their laptops. Fellows have had <a href="http://www.spiegel.de/wissenschaft/medizin/gesundheitsoekonomen-fordern-qualitaetsmessung-im-system-a-882665.html">bylines</a> on newsroom projects and spurred the development of <a href="https://github.com/jazzido/tabula">new tools</a>. They&rsquo;ve <a href="https://review.wizehive.com/voting/view/elaustria2013/13692/1166806">won hack days</a> and pursued <a href="http://source.mozillaopennews.org/articles/mapping-history-street-names/">passion projects</a>. They&rsquo;ve <a href="http://sonya2song.blogspot.com/2013/06/talk-on-news-censorship.html">done research</a> that gives us a better understanding of journalism and <a href="http://brianabelson.com/open-news/2013/03/18/A-Metric-For-News-Apps.html">its impact</a>. Fellows get to spend ten months working on projects that matter.</p>
+<h3>PLACES THEY GO</h3>
+
+<p>Many Fellows move to a new city and sometimes even a new country to join their news organization. But the travel excitement does not end there. In addition to helping organize events in <a href="https://github.com/veltman/learninglunches/">their newsroom</a> or <a href="http://www.meetup.com/Hacks-Hackers-Berlin/">host city</a>, Fellows attend, present, and hack at events around the world. <a href="http://www.bdatafest.computationalreporting.com/projects/fms-symphony">Barcelona</a> to <a href="http://inklink2013.wordpress.com/2013/05/28/179/">Budapest</a>, <a href="http://www.bdatafest.computationalreporting.com/projects/fms-symphony">New York</a> to <a href="http://martinbelam.com/2013/hacks-hackers-knight-mozilla-fellows/">London</a>, throughout <a href="http://datamineruk.com/2012/09/17/data-journalism-in-argentina/">Latin America</a>, and many places in between, Fellows get to see the world while collaborating with journalists and developers to find solutions to real problems facing news organizations.</p>
+
+<h3>TIME THEY SPEND TOGETHER</h3>
+
+<p>Unlike many fellowship programs, Knight-Mozilla Fellows spend the bulk of their time with their news organization rather than being together is a group. But Knight-Mozilla Fellows are still able to create a sense of community and the space to share ideas and support one another throughout the Fellowship. In addition to connecting virtually, the entire group of Fellows comes together several times throughout the Fellowship. The program kicks off with an <a href="http://dansinker.com/post/41711568489/opennews-building-a-community-of-fellows">on-boarding event</a>, and over the year OpenNews brings the Fellows together at other events such as the <a href="http://civic.mit.edu/conference2013">MIT-Knight Civic Media Conference</a> in Boston and the <a href="http://mediaparty.hhba.info/">Hacks/Hackers Buenos Aires Media Party</a>. As Fellows develop projects or interest areas, they also gather for smaller group events and trainings. Even while working in physically separate locations, the Fellows form a bond as a group and become part of the growing Knight-Mozilla Fellows community.</p>

+<h3>Embedded in the Newsroom</h3>
<p>The Knight-Mozilla Fellows are able to experience the day-to-day energy of some of the best newsrooms in the world. Being present as news breaks, writing code for the day&rsquo;s headlines, wrangling thorny datasets, and taking a step back to solve real-world journalistic problems, the Knight-Mozilla Fellows' work is rooted in developing projects that help us better understand our world. Prior Fellows have gone on to use their newsroom experience in developing tools for journalists and working full-time as a data journalist.</p>
-<p>Example projects from our <a href="communitylink">community of Fellows</a> include:
-* <a href="https://github.com/jazzido/tabula">Tabula</a> a tool to extract tabular data from PDFs.
-* A series of <a href="https://github.com/veltman/learninglunches/">learning lunches</a> for newsroom colleagues.
-* Research into the <a href="http://brianabelson.com/open-news/2013/03/18/A-Metric-For-News-Apps.html">impact of news apps</a>.
-* A <a href="https://review.wizehive.com/voting/view/elaustria2013/13692/1166806">winning hack day project</a>.

+<h3>Working in the Open</h3>
<p>Knight-Mozilla Fellows share the work they&rsquo;re doing with the world outside of the newsroom. By blogging their experiences, pushing code to open repositories, taking part in the OpenNews <a href="https://wiki.mozilla.org/OpenNews/Calls">community calls</a>, and engaging with other developers, the Knight-Mozilla Fellows are helping to spread the code they&rsquo;re making and strengthen the journalism-developer community. And given that news is such a large part of the web, the open work of the Fellows contributes to a more transparent and accessible open web.</p>
