NewsGeek: Introduction to DocumentCloud

Join us for our inaugural NewsGeek, an event sponsored by Newsweek Digital.  NewsGeek is an effort to reach out to news and technology professionals in the NYC area, to provide a forum for the free exchange of ideas, and to stay on the cutting edge. 

The subject of our first NewsGeek event is DocumentCloud:

DocumentCloud will be software, a Web site, and a set of open standards that will make original source documents easy to find, share, read and collaborate on, anywhere on the Web. Users will be able to search for documents by date, topic, person, location, etc. and will be able to do "document dives," collaboratively examining large sets of documents. Organizations will be able to do all this while keeping the documents--and readers--on their own sites. Think of it as a card catalog for primary source documents.

Aron Pilhofer, Scott Klein, and Eric Umansky will be here to talk about the latest developments of DocumentCloud as well as answer questions.  Aron Pilhofer is editor of Interactive News Technologies at The New York Times, overseeing a news-focused team of journalist/developers who build dynamic, data-driven applications to enhance The Times' reporting online.
