NICAR/Newseum News Apps Archiving Designathon
Sunday, March 2, 2014 from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM (EST)
With news nerds from around the country visiting Baltimore for NICAR, we thought it'd be a great chance to gather folks for some hands-on work after the conference. The Newseum in DC was kind enough to offer to host this event.
For folks in Baltimore for NICAR, we will have a van leaving the conference hotel Sunday morning that will transport us to the Newseum in DC.
Our goal is to create an end-to-end approach for archiving data journalism projects. This day will serve as a design day for a fuller hackathon at the Newseum in March 2014. Before the event: contribute ideas of projects to archive and archival technology to explore. At the event: Split into groups to further assess projects and tech. End goal: identify three projects or design challenges to focus on.
