The MuckRock crew is heading to New Orleans for the Online News Association’s conference, and we’d love to see you! Come join us on Friday, September 13 for two events: DocumentCloud’s tenth birthday party at 4:30 pm, followed by a Hacks/Hackers cocktail hour at 6 pm.
Each event will offer a chance to meet the team, learn about what we’ve been working on, and get exclusive swag, including your first chance to purchase brand new DocumentCloud t-shirts.
We’ll kick things off at the Sheraton with a birthday party hosted by the Knight Foundation where we look back at DocumentCloud’s history, present and future. We’ll have DocumentCloud stickers, pins, t-shirts and, of course, cake to celebrate, and we’ll be getting your feedback on what we should be working on next.
This reception runs from 4:30 – 5:30 pm. While the event is free, an RSVP is required so register now.
But the fun doesn’t stop there! We’re joining together with Hacks/Hackers and enotice to co-host a cocktail reception at Lucid on 365 Canal Street at 6 pm. The event will include food, drinks, and lightning talks from journalists, media entrepreneurs, and technologists on what a more inclusive media would look like, all with one of the best views of the city and just minutes away from the main conference venue.
And finally, we’ll be demoing our crowdsourcing tool, Assignments, at Booth 101 in the Napoleon Ballroom as part of #JSKatONA. Come get a hands-on demonstration of how Assignments works, and we can even talk you through strategies for tackling any big documents sets you have your hands on.
