Muckraker Meet-Ups Everywhere

'Tis the season for networking, with GIJN members busy around the world: Last weekend IRE's NICAR conference, the mother of all data journalism meets, drew a record 1050 people to Denver to share tips and tools. In Berlin, the 2nd Logan CIJ Symposium brought together journalists with artists, whistleblowers, and security experts to battle "secrecy, surveillance, and censorship." In Bogota, Consejo de Redacción's 9th Colombian Investigative Journalism Conference took place. Coming up: the Int'l Journalism Festival in Perugia, Italy; Dataharvest outside Brussels; and IRE's annual shindig in New Orleans. GIJN will be at all three events, so be sure to say hello. And check out our calendar for a list of events worldwide.
