Hello all, We're excited to announce the speakers for Demo Day 4 on April 2 at Bloomberg LP. RSVP now to see presentations by:
They'll each get 5 minutes to show their projects, followed by 5 minutes of Q&A with all of us. Demo Days are always a fun event, so be sure to be there. And thanks to Bloomberg, we'll have plenty of time to socialize and network. The event starts at 6 p.m., and you must RSVP in advance ($10) to attend. The RSVP list closes tomorrow, March 29, so don't hesitate! On a separate note, Hacks/Hackers (the umbrella group) is applying for a Knight News Challenge grant, and we need your support to be a contender. tl;dnr: Read the Hacks/Hackers application on the Knight News Challenge Tumblr site and click the heart or post a comment if you like the idea. And here are further details from Burt Herman, co-founder of Hacks/Hackers: Dear Hacks and Hackers, We’ve long sought to bring everyone together and enable journalists and technologists to connect regardless of their geographic location. We also want to make sure Hacks/Hackers survives as a sustainable movement long into the future. To make that happen, we’re applying for the latest Knight News Challenge to connect and grow the Hacks/Hackers network. We want to help people to connect online to collaborate, making the network stronger as a collective with the wisdom of all hacks and hackers. And we would like to bring together people from across the world for an in-person gathering at some point early next year for the first-ever global Hacks/Hackers unconference. We need your support and input to make this happen, and strongly encourage you to comment on our application at the Knight News Challenge Tumblr site Our chances of success there depend in part on showing we can rally a network to our cause, so please help us by expressing your support. Thank you!
