Next to JAWS CAMP, my favorite conference is NICAR, Investigative Reporters & Editors’ annual National Institute on Computer Assisted Reporting’s geeky weekend. One of the highlights this year was Saturday’s night’s “Women in CAR” dinner, where 40 women got together at a Louisville, Ky., restaurant. Former JAWS board member Jennifer LaFleur of ProPublica helped put the dinner together and recalled one year when fewer than 10 women attended a similar NICAR dinner. That so many of us got together this year is a great sign that women journalists are getting more involved in technology. read more
