Hacks/Hackers Lab
Come hangout with journalists and developers interested in the future...err, present of journalism. It doesn't matter if you are a rockstar data analyst or just beginning to monkey around with Excel pivot tables. We intend to be a space and community we're people of all backgrounds and skill-level can discuss project ideas, find out what others are working on, or develop and hone their programming skills.

What we're about

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. Hacker-journalists try and bridge the two worlds. This group is to bring all these people together -- those who are working to help people make sense of their world. It's for hackers exploring technologies to filter and visualize information, and for journalists who use technology to find and tell stories. In the age of information overload, all their work has become even more crucial. This group aims to help members find inspiration and think in new directions, bringing together potential collaborators for projects and new ventures.
