October Meetup — Knight Lab in D.C.

  • Oct 23, 2012 · 6:30 PM
  • Medill

Join us for a discussion with folks from the Knight Lab at Northwestern University, a group of computer scientists and journalists that experiments, builds and iterates in hopes of inventing tools that will change the way media informs the world.

In its first year, the team has deployed a few exciting prototypes and tools, including: TimelineJSLocal AngleLocal CirlceHashtaggerPrintFSoundCite. The Lab won an Online Journalism Award this year for its Congressional Primaries project.

Collaboration with real-world organizations is one of the Lab's hallmarks — if you’ve got an idea (or the start of an idea), the Lab wants to hear from you.


6:30—7 p.m.

Drinks, snacks and mingling.

7—7:45 p.m.

Miranda Mulligan and Ryan Graff from the Knight Lab will discuss projects the Lab has already launched and the Lab's ambition for doing more work with news organizations in the coming year. As always, there will be time for your questions.

7:45—8:30 p.m.

Networking and more drinks.

We hope you will come to Medill for what promises to be a cool discussion. The $5 entry fee covers your drinks and food.

See you in October!

— Tiffany and Matt

    Hey, I work in the same building, but unfortunately, I am swamped with work. Would anyone like to go in my place? Sorry for the last-minute cancellation! Feel free to email me directly at [masked].

      Sorry, everyone, but someone has claimed the spot.

    Came across the ONA meetup tweet. Got interested. Then, you see, I couldn't pay the $5 from where I was. There was no way I could pay in the 20 minutes of RSVP time. If someone helps me with that money to register my name, my guaranteed payback will be a big THANK YOU or the loan and interest, (whichever way the kind person chooses the return) when I attend.
