Short talks on recent projects

The second installation of Hacks/Hackers Sydney

The Hacks/Hackers mission is to create a network of journalists (“hacks”) and technologists (“hackers”) who rethink the future of news and information and bridge the gap between tech and media.

This meet-up will consist of short talks from programmers, designers, journalists, and various other people on the intersection of technology and journalism, with a focus on recent projects combining the two.

This is your chance to ask some of the experts exactly how they did what they did, and why.

Time permitting, we may open the floor to impromptu short talks also.

    Great talk and interesting insight last night, guys, but maybe a mike would be good for the next talk. I missed a few of the points because I couldn't hear the speakers. Got most of it though. Can't wait for the next one

    Good talks, all speakers were great. Venue is a bit dingy though.

    Hi all - we're postponing this to the new date of October 30th - just to give it a bit more lead-up time, and it also works better for most of the guys speaking. Cheers!
