A few things to note:
2. I recently recorded a podcast with Peter J. Rudy with Oklahomans for Responsible Government. We talked about transparency efforts at the state and local level.
3. My friend Michelle Minkoff, a recent graduate of Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, has been profiling database journalists and computer-assisted reporting experts as part of her “Data Delvers” series. She’s interviewed some of the giants in the field, including Phil Meyer, and some of the not-so-giants, like me. Best of luck to Michelle as she embarks on an internship with the Los Angeles Times Data Desk.
4. The Oklahoman/NewsOK recently won several First Amendment awards at the Fort Worth Pro Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists. My DataWatch blog won in the Commentary/Opinion category for a post last year on the Oklahoma Supreme Court.
