Reminder Subject: TALK: Goosing the Gray Lady: Data + journalism + graphics at The New York Times

ABSTRACT
The New York Times has earned a reputation for being one of the true innovators in data journalism and data visualization. That didn't happen by accident: Unlike so many news organizations, The Times has invested heavily in digital, particularly in the newsroom. I'll talk about how we got where we are today, show examples of some of the best work we have done (and maybe some of the projects that didn't go so well), and talk about where I think The Times -- and the industry -- is heading.
