Chicago Python folks:


BarCamp NewsInnovation Chicago 2.21.09




Join this group for a one-day un-conference to experience the creativity and
energy that occurs when technologist, programmers, web developers,
designers, hackers and information architects teams to do cool stuff with
journalists, entrepreneurs, tech business dudes, students, professors and
others with interest in news and information.


This ad hoc event will be a place to not only talk about how technology is
influencing journalism, but participants will be given the opportunity to
brainstorm an idea and hack it out by the end of the afternoon.


The idea behind BarCamp NewsInnovation is to get energetic, tech-savvy,
open-minded individuals who embrace the chaos in the media industry because
the ability to do really cool things still exists.


The nature of a barcamp is to share ideas, expand thinking and creativity
and prototype or demonstrate something, and the same will be true for
BarCamp NewsInnovation.
