WHAT IS INFORMATION? (2020)
through University of Oregon Portland

What is Information? (2020) will investigate conceptualizations and implementations of information via material, representational, and hybrid frames. The conference-experience will consider information and its transformational æffects—from documents to data; from facts and fictions to pattern recognition; from physical information to differential equations; and from volatility, uncertainty, and ambiguity to collective intelligence and wisdom.

The tenth annual What is…? examines tapestries, temperaments, and topologies of information lenses and practices—including—social and technical, mathematical and semantic, physical and biological, economic and political, cultural and environmental information. Scholars, government and community officials, industry professionals, alumni, students, as well as scientists, artists, filmmakers, grassroots community organizations, and the public are invited to collaborate. We welcome submissions for papers, panels, roundtables and installations.

Digital Journalism PDX: Journalism and the Future of Mobile with Jason Grigsby
The Canvas Art Bar

There's an aphorism that's making the rounds these days in journalism circles that goes something like this: News organizations are treating mobile like they did print and the Web 10 years ago. In other words, they're acting like mobile - with all its different facets - is just the Web on a smaller screen.

That may be an oversimplification, but it zeros in on a major problem: What the heck are we doing when it comes to smartphones, apps, different mobile operating systems, feature phones, tablets, and on and on? At the next Digital Journalism Social Hour, Portland's Jason Grigsby is going to help us try and get a handle on that question.

Digital Journalism PDX: Why is community interaction our responsibility?
The Canvas Art Bar

For February's social hour we'll be returning to The Canvas. Our topic: how and why we interact with our online audiences. A handful of community managers/social media coordinators from local news orgs will be on hand to describe their company policies. But how we interact with our communities is only part of the story. Why we do it is the bigger question.

Come join your fellow journalists for food, drinks and what's sure to be a good conversation.

pdxrlang meetup: Chester Ismay: Creating the fivethirtyeight R data package
WeWork Custom House

Speaker: Chester Ismay (https://github.com/ismayc) - Instructional Technologist and Consultant for Data Science, Statistics, and R at Reed College

Abstract: In this talk, I will discuss the motivation behind creating a data package using the data from the stories produced by FiveThirtyEight. I’ll also walk through the process of creating a data package in R and some of the vignettes for the package that have been created by my students and others from throughout the world. Lastly, I’ll discuss some ideas (that I’d love to work with others on) for other data packages in R that can better serve the R community by helping novice and intermediate R users work with and tidy “messy” data.

Art of Questioning
Portland Community Church

"Judge a person by their questions rather than their answers" - Voltaire

Do you want to solve problems quickly or be unafraid to talk to anyone?

I'm going to experiment with my social skills by interviewing at least twenty strangers in public. My goal is to ask the most interesting questions and if I'm successful, it will lead to even more interesting questions. This is a great way to learn about a person or topic very quickly.

I'm planning to record my interviews and share my techniques by recapping the results during the Meetup. If anyone would like to volunteer, we can practice the "Art of Questioning".

If you're a student "Questioning is the ability to organize your thinking around what we don't know" - The Right Question Institute. If you're a teacher, questions can guide a student to a better answer. Either way, we can do both.

Be inspired! Knowledge Mavens
