Nieman Lab: This handy little tool draws from Bloomberg data to add financial context on top of any news article

Nieman Lab: This handy little tool draws from Bloomberg data to add financial context on top of any news article. “A new tool built for Bloomberg by the New York-based mobile and web development agency Postlight cuts the fact-finding process for those interested in the financial context around companies and people that appear in the news to a single step. Called Bloomberg Lens, the tool will find companies and people names in any news article — not just Bloomberg’s — and overlay key facts like such as stock prices or a person’s previous company affiliations.” Currently available for Chrome and iOS, with Android coming soon.
