Oh no. Is #nicar13 really over?
RT @myersjustinc: "Be excellent at _something_," @pilhofer says. Jack of all trades is fine; master of none isn't. #NICAR13

Get data skills. Demand now far ahead of supply, says final #nicar13 panel. Here's the job board:
.@jkeefe shows Mapbox map that places road feature layer OVER choropleth layer. Very nice: #nicar13
RT @eads: Interested in the Google docs-powered CMS @hbillings has been talking about? It's open source! #nicar13

.@mattwaite: embedded sensors, UAVs and neurological sensors where we will find next great stats. Likely to be seen first in sports #nicar13
RT @greglinch: He learned about these things from Pitchf/x, which tracks every detail about pitches @mattwaite #NICAR13
.@mattwaite: sensors are the future, and already being used heavily in gathering sports data #nicar13
.@jeremybowers "banks, hospitals and schools are basically baseball players: complex things whose stats have mitigating factors." #nicar13
Why isn't @derekwillis on the "inside baseball" panel? I want cricket data. #nicar13
.@mattwaite: know what the "atomic unit" of your data project is. Be able to answer "What is your Thing?" #nicar13
.@mattwaite on data projects in news orgs: needs small, committed team, tight focus, and ability to resist pressure to complicate #nicar13
.@eyeseast: Homicide Watch extracted the data structure from what was learned from each day's reporting #nicar13
Projects that meet @eyeseast's model: Politifact, SchoolBook, Frontline Concussion Watch, FiveThirtyEight, Homicide Watch #nicar13
.@eyeseast: "Beats needs data; data needs a narrative. Day-to-day reporting should accrue data." #nicar13
