ONA DC: Knight Lab in D.C.

 An ONA Local event, hosted by ONA DC

ONA DC: Knight Lab in D.C.
Join us for a discussion with folks from the Knight Lab at Northwestern University, a group of computer scientists and journalists that experiments, builds and iterates in hopes of inventing tools that will change the way media informs the world.

In its first year, the team has deployed a few exciting prototypes and tools, including: TimelineJS, Local Angle, Local Cirlce, Hashtagger, PrintF, SoundCite. The Lab won an Online Journalism Award this year for its Congressional Primaries project.

Collaboration with real-world organizations is one of the Lab’s hallmarks — if you’ve got an idea (or the start of an idea), the Lab wants to hear from you.


6:30—7 p.m.

Drinks, snacks and mingling.

7—7:45 p.m.

Miranda Mulligan and Ryan Graff from the Knight Lab will discuss projects the Lab has already launched and the Lab’s ambition for doing more work with news organizations in the coming year. As always, there will be time for your questions.

7:45—8:30 p.m.

Networking and more drinks.

We hope you will come to Medill for what promises to be a cool discussion. The $5 entry fee covers your drinks and food. ONADC volunteers will be in the lobby to help you enter the building and provide directions. The newsroom is on the seventh floor.

See you in October!
