Big Data and the Future of Journalism event wrap up

Thank you to all who attended the event on big data and the future of journalism last night at District Hall. Thank you also to the sponsors who made the event possible and panelists who made the event excellent. Special thanks to Google, WBUR, and the Knight Foundation for their support. A few wrap up links.

  1. Several of you asked for the slides which were playing during Steve Koczela's presentation, which can be downloaded here (2.6 MB).
  2. Brent Benson has written up a summary of the proceedings on his Mass. Numbers blog, which is worth a read.
  3. Others asked about the visualization Charlie Kravetz mentioned, which is here, along with renderings of other US cities including Boston.
