I am interested in working with using social media and other tools to spread news and information. I also love the data behind media stories. I would love to work on projects that use data to bring out important issues.
The worlds of hackers and journalists are coming together as reporting goes digital and Internet companies become media empires. Journalists call themselves hacks, someone who can churn out words in any situation. Hackers use the digital equivalent of duct tape to whip out code.
This group is to bring all these people together -- those who are working to help people make sense of their world. Help us build the future of media!
