The series was Eisinger and Bernstein's "The Wall Street Money Machine" which described how hedge funds & financiers profited from the collapse of the economy. ProPublica publishes under a Creative Commons license and hosts a Nerd Blog where they write about journalism-related hacking and publish open source tools they have developed."
