(801) Hacktivism and Data Journalism

A session at Mozilla Festival 2012

Sunday 11th November, 2012

4:00pm to 5:00pm (GMT)

Data challenges and how hacktivism can help journalism change status quo:

  • Data and Access to Information context
  • Killing data skepticism by doing it yourself (if gov. doesn’t open data, do it yourself).
  • How we believe media must help promote a movement to open data and develop applications that will empower people´s participation and government accountability.
  • 4 examples of data challenges LA NACION solved in collaboration with hacktivism
