The New York Times has earned a reputation for being one of the true innovators in data journalism and data visualization. That didn't happen by accident: Unlike so many news organizations, The Times has invested heavily in digital, particularly in the newsroom. I'll talk about how we got where we are today, show examples of some of the best work we have done (and maybe some of the projects that didn't go so well), and talk about where I think The Times -- and the industry -- is heading.
Aron Pilhofer is the founding editor of Interactive News at The New York Times. His newsroom team combines journalism, social media and technology. A co-founder of DocumentCloud, the project aims to improve journalism by making document sharing and searching online easier. In 2009 Aron founded Hacks and Hackers, with the aim of bringing journalists and technologists together. Over the length of his career, he has spent time as a reporter, editor and trainer. He joined The New York Times in 2005.
