Great news! There’s going to be a panel discussion on structured journalism at next month’s NICAR conference, in Denver. Getting on the program at the biggest collection of data journalists and all-around news geeks marks a real step ahead for embedding the ideas of structured journalism into newsroom.
Entitled “Structured Journalism: Creating the Atoms of News,” the session will feature David Caswell, creator of Structured Stories, and Jacqui Maher of the BBC’s News Labs, and moderated by yours truly.
We’re still going over what we plan to cover, but it should be a good session that goes over some of the new structured journalism projects, addresses questions about the viability of some of the earlier projects, and tries to look ahead at new developments over the horizon.
We’ll definitely want a lot of discussion with people in the room, so if you’re going to be at NICAR, please come by. It’s on Friday, March 11 at 11:30 a.m, in rooms Colorado G-J (wherever that is.)
I’ll also be moderating a session on data teams and where we’re going with them, and that should be a pretty interesting panel too. It’ll have Sarah Cohen, Scott Klein, Jennifer LaFleur and Ben Welsh – as good a group to talk about the subject as you’ll find.
So come by to that as well if you can. And just head to Denver and NICAR in general. It’s a great conference, a wonderful way to network and stay on top of the field, and a good bunch of people to drink with. And, oh, there are some decent panels to attend too.
