Transparent Text 2009 Coverage

IBM Research Cambridge hosted the Transparent Text Symposium yesterday and today. Judging by the conversation it's sparking, I missed a great event. The sheer volume of interesting presentations looks astounding.

Start by checking twitter, #tt09. Daniel has been carpet-tweeting the entire event! Check out his coverage of Day 1 and Day 2.

Be sure to read Ethan Zuckerman posts on what Matthew Gray is doing with the Google Books data and Beth Noveck's open government keynote.

If you haven't checked out the Guardian's datablog, do it! Tons of captivating and informative information vizualization. Their talk at TT highlighted the MP Spending crowd sourcing project.

I look forward to catching up with the videos once they are posted!


  1. It really was an incredible event. I'm sorry you missed it, and my carpet-tweets don't do it justice. But hopefully the videos will be posted soon.

  2. Sounds like a pretty cool event. Thanks for the post. I will definitely check it out. Other than that, I miss our coffees :)
