Hacks and Hackers talk computational journalism

At the “H/H @Stanford: Computational journalism with CIR, Vocativ and SmartNews” meetup on Tuesday night, journalists (“hacks”) and programmers (“hackers”) gathered to learn from three speakers about ways to use technology to enhance news narratives.
