Data journalism: What it is and why it matters


If you think Big Data is a reference to David Ortiz’s World Series OPS, you’ll want to be sure to attend MassINC’s free panel discussion on “Big Data and the Future of Journalism” on Tuesday, Feb. 11, at 4 p.m.

I’ll be moderating, which means you and I will have a chance to learn from some wicked smart people about what data journalism is, where it’s headed and why it matters. You can find out all the details by clicking here.

In addition to the panelists listed, we’ll be joined by Laura Amico, the co-founder of Homicide Watch, who teaches at Northeastern University and is working on a project called Learning Lab at WBUR Radio (90.9 FM).
