This one is going to scare the crap out of some of you. If you’re pursuing a career in journalism, writing, blogging, editorial, or a similar area, you might want to start looking over your shoulder. The computers are coming. We’ve already heard about companies like Demand Media churning out tons of content with cheap labor, but now Narrative Science thinks that they can do it with no labor (except the programmers who write the software). They’re a five-month old company based in Evanston, IL, and to be honest, beyond that, I don’t know much. I first heard about them from this article in BusinessWeek, and I knew that I had to share the story with all of you. Right now, Narrative Science is focused on the field of sports. More specifically, they’re turning box scores into short news stories. I’m sure some journalists are up in arms about this, but the truth is that if you can be replaced by a computer, then it’s your own damn fault.

Be Part of the Narrative

Now, Narrative Science probably may never be used to write a recap of a Yankees game. The major names in sports are going to continue to have beat writers covering them for a long time, but the Big Ten Network is already using Narrative Science to cover college baseball. No, it’s not a substitute for having a real journalist there, but it’s way cheaper. And that means that Narrative Science can cover events that normally wouldn’t be covered because of economics (they’re planning on tackling financial, medical, and survey data after sports). Maybe this idea will flop, and journalists will beat the computers, but I wouldn’t bet against Narrative Science. And that’s why I’m talking about them. Even though they don’t even have an About page (let alone a Jobs page), they’re the kind of company that you need to watch out for. Getting in with them early could be life changing, so reach out to them at and tell them why you want to join their team. They may not be looking to hire anyone right now, but there’s only one way to find out for sure.

    Willy, thanks for the post. We are looking for a few journalism interns for the summer as well as several full-time software engineers and a VP of engineering.

    Interested parties can send me an email: ladams @ my company’s domain with a resume, etc.

    • Hi Larry,

      Looks like my instincts were right. Thanks for dropping by to reach out to our readers. I’ll copy your comment over to One Day, One Internship to make sure that those readers see it too.
