I've been a journalist in the three-county Austin metro area since 1981. I've started three new publications since 1995, including In Fact Daily, The Good Life magazine, and The Austin Bulldog.
I'm always on the lookout for folks with the skills and energy that will help us do more investigative reporting. One project I have needs a series of maps. Another idea I have would require someone with Flash experience.
I'm Ken Martin. On April 1, 2011, I launched The Austin Bulldog, a nonprofit for investigative reporting in the public interest.
I think the group is a terrific idea and I appreciate Cindy Royal's and others efforts to organize it. I wish more hacks would participate as the group seems to lean heavily toward hackers. I know Cindy and Christian are frustrated about that, but we do need to figure out how to better market these meetups.
