I'm a Hacks/Hackers organizer out of NYC. Do a lot of work looking at news innovation and the startup space, especially with the Knight News Challenge. Worked as a reporter at The New York Times for 9 years.

Are you a hack (writer, photographer, content creator), a hacker (developer, engineer, designer) or both?

Hack. Wish I were a hacker. Wrote a book on Chinese food called "The Fortune Cookie Chronicles" that landed me on Colbert and

Are you looking for partners to collaborate on a project, and if so what?

I'm looking to find good ideas and good teams in news innovation.

    I'm sorry I chimed in too late to register for Coding for Beginners. Is there a waiting list? Will you be offering this event again?

    Hi Jennifer. Sorry for the somewhat half-baked intro. I'm a designer at foursquare, where I mostly do UI design for the web. Excited to come see Kushal talk about our API and see what everybody else has to show for demo day!

    Hiya -- yah, I did :-) I know Burt from SF, just moved to Boston (started as a postdoc at Microsoft Research [working with danah boyd] and a Fellow at Harvard's Berkman Center), and was considering taking a trip down to NYC the weekend of 11/6-7. I study journalism & networked tech so Hacks/Hackers is def of interest. Would love to meet up at some point! ([masked])

    Hey 8. I did not realize you show up for the NYTM. Considering you are one of the two or three most prolific people in my Facebook stream, I hope I bump into you. Would like to meet in person at some point. .... And I am intrigued by your tagline. Reinventing the business models underlying news reporting. ... Hmm. I would be curious as to what you have in mind. You are already up to the neck in social media. Perhaps leveraging that would be a big part of it.
