It’s beautiful! (And just when I’d given up. Thanks for the tip, Laura)
Just replaced our three embarrassingly old smoke alarms. Did you know they make ones now that are combination smoke/CO alarms? And that they have 10-year batteries? Check how old yours are!
It’s a self-care night: a cocktail or two and a viewing of Company and When Harry Met Sally. These are the things that I enjoy.
Hit my 12-hour standing goal at 5:01 p.m. today.
Here’s a presentation I gave at the National Institute of Computer Assisted Reporting (NICAR) annual conference back in March in Jacksonville, Fla.
For the past few years, I’ve talked about how to do data in your newsroom when you’re the only one doing it. This year I talked less about specific tips and tools and more about the conceptual process, more broadly — good things to think about.
The idea was to talk through the process of planning, pitching and executing data stories when you’re the only one doing them.
You can find the presentation here.
Note: I transcribed the notes from the conference audio and tried to clean it up a bit; please forgive any typos or phrasing that doesn’t translate well into writing.
And one more stop before heading home…
