Hi everyone,

from one of the New York Times stories on the Panama Papers:
"The ICIJ made a number of powerful research tools available to the
consortium that the group had developed for previous leak investigations.
Those included a secure, Facebook-type forum where reporters could post the
fruits of their research, as well as database search program called
“Blacklight” that allowed the teams to hunt for specific names, countries
or sources."

I assume this is, which is pretty cool to see
used that way. Does anyone know or have read anything about the other tools
they used? What did they use for OCR? Did they use qualitative data
analysis software? Some type of annotation tools? It seems like there's a
lot to learn from this effort.
