GIJN Weekly Bulletin -- March 11, 2015

1,000 Gather for NICAR Data Journalism Conference
We're just back from the NICAR15 conference in Atlanta, which hosted nearly a thousand hacks, hackers, coders, mappers, and data geeks from 20 countries. This is the mother of all data journalism events, and it showcases the field's deep roots in investigative reporting. Check out the more than 100 tip sheets and presentations. Timed to the conference, we ran an excerpt from one of the books that started it all: the newly revised, 4th edition of Computer-Assisted Reporting, by GIJN Board Chair Brant Houston. 

        Hard-Hitting Documentary          Too Much for Beijing
Under the Dome is a breakthrough documentary that takes a tough look at China's out-of-control pollution problems. After the video's online release in February, it garnered an extraordinary 100 million views in under 24 hours. The investigative work proved too much for officials in Beijing, who days ago removed the film from Chinese video sites. But the video is still available here with English subtitles.
