Robert Niles is a long-time math and computer geek who turned to journalism after graduating from Northwestern University. He is the creator of many online journalism tutorials and niche websites, ranging in topics from theme parks to the violin. These sites often involve readers as reporters, inviting them to contribute to the sites' coverage. The Online News Association and the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism honored Nile's ThemeParkInsider.com in 2001 with an Online Journalism Award for Service Journalism. The Webby Awards named the same site a finalist for Best Guides/Ratings/Reviews Site in 2005. Niles is long-time contributor and columnist to the Online Journalism Review and also has worked as a Web editor, editorial writer and reporter for several newspapers, including the Los Angeles Times, (Denver) Rocky Mountain News, Omaha World-Herald and the (Bloomington, Ind.) Herald-Times.
