Ever want to be a fly on the wall while interesting ideas and topics are being discussed?

Published 2013-02-09

On Wednesday, thankfully before breaking news shifted my focus entirely, I had the pleasure of listening to some great minds in the area of technology and journalism share their thoughts on everything from data visualization to the pitfalls of throwing everything on a map.

O'Reilly's Alex Howard hosted a Google Hangout on the topic of data journalism. Present were O’Reilly's Mac Slocum, USA Today's Anthony DeBarros, NPR's Brian Boyer, Dave Stanton from SmartMedia Creative, Michelle Minkoff from The Associated Press, Tariq Kokhar from the World Bank, Simon Rogers from The Guardian and myself.
