LA Hackathon on immigration

Like never before, technology provides journalists unprecedented access to information.

LOS ANGELES, CA – The world is opening up and data is everywhere. IBM estimates that we create 2.5 quintillion bytes of new dataevery day and it is expanding faster than anything else we have measured over decades. That means data journalism is strongly becoming the future of our society.

As part of its efforts to grow communities of data users and encourage journalists, NGOs, scientists and programmers to explore opportunities together, RDataVox is excited to announce the first Hackathon on Immigration in Los Angeles.

The 2-day event is designed to demystify “open” data around three simple questions:

• Now that data has been “opened,” how can we make the most of it?

• How can we use open software to breathe new life to our data?

• How can we empower journalists to be more active agents in their own communities?

“Journalists are the defenders of freedom. They provide a voice to the voiceless, hold the powerful accountable and empower people to stand up for themselves. Like never before, technology provides journalists unprecedented access to information that will equal the playing field for many of society’s most vulnerable…immigrants.” expressed Hugo Balta, president of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ).

A team of experts from Google, Stanford and journalists from national media outlets will lead the 2-day event. Participants will learn how to find, extract, and analyze public data, using open software tools, to tell better-informed stories. They will also work in teams tobuild the most innovative use and visualization of immigration data.

The event will be held on December 8th and 9th, 2012, at La Opinion’s offices in Los Angeles, California.

“There are some who consider journalism a dead profession and industry. However, similar to the many activities that have been transformed with the advent of the Internet, journalism has evolved with the integration of hard data investigations and personal testimony. For La Opinion, it is very important to be able to work with such an excellent group to combine new investigative journalism with the topic of immigration for the benefit of the entire ethnic community,” stated Hilda García, vice president of multiplatform news and information at Impremedia.
