Demo Day is Hacks/Hackers NYC's periodic opportunity for members to show off their journalism-related projects.
If you've one, this is your opportunity to explain the story you were going after, or the problem you were trying to solve, and how you did it.
Apply now to present at Demo Day 4 (April 2, at Bloomberg LP) by filling out this form. Deadline to apply is 8 p.m. ET, Friday, March 23.
To attend Demo Day 4, RSVP today ($10, payable in advance) â€” and if you've got a suggestion for what type of food you'd like, be sure to fill out the RSVP questionnaire.
We're looking for volunteers to blog about the event. If you'd like to help us out, email us at nyc[at]hackshackers[dot]com.
And finally, if the $10 fee is beyond your budget, please email nyc[at]hackshackers[dot]com and we'll work things out with you.
At past Demo Days, selected speakers have wowed the crowd with projects such as:
The data gathering and data structuring behind Dollars for Docs
The TPM election night app, a high-class production made with limited resources; and
Text Toggle, created to make embedding and presenting interactive translations much easier
Baroque, a custom-built front page CMS;
ScraperWiki, an online tool for scraping data and requesting data scrapes;
HunchWorks, a social graph for ground truth; and
SenseCast, an experiment in Kinect-driven news displays
