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

I'm a little of both -- journalist who now teaches at the Medill School at Northwestern, with a particular expertise in "computer-assisted reporting" or "precision journalism."

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

I'm looking for people with computer programming backgrounds interested in studying journalism at Medill: We have a scholarship program you might want to consider: http://bit.ly/bJVFP6

Introduction

In May 2009, Aron Pilhofer and I came up with an idea to create Hacks & Hackers for people doing computer programming in media and journalism. Meanwhile, Burt Herman came up with a similar idea. Now we've joined forces: http://to.pbs.org...­
