What we're about
We bring together data scientists and journalists to create timely and rigorous data journalism.
Update: A very very insightful and at times frightening meetup #19 on government-driven social media manipulation last Thursday! Member Jingnan Huo talked about Dr. Howard and Samantha Bradshaw’s findings on NPR following our meeting. Congrats and thank you, Jingnan! https://soundcloud.com/flavius-mihaies/npr-...;
We began as a way to connect the local participants in the Knight Center's Python for Data Journalists: Analyzing Money in Politics MOOC last June and continued as a community to get to know more people interested in data journalism around DC, and now worldwide, and produce consequential data journalism that helps identify the scale of an issue of importance to our times or has the potential of influencing policy. To this end, the group will actively explore avenues for publishing project outcomes.
Stories we produce are published on our website datajournos.com (http://www.datajournos.com) and Medium publication https://medium.com/datajournos
