Greetings! I’m here in Atlanta for the Online News Association’s #ONA13 conference — my sixth consecutive ONA. Check out the stuff below, if it strikes your fancy.
Follow me on Twitter as @greglinch and be sure to say hello there and in-person! I’m always happy to talk about ONA, the board, the ONA student committee and a smattering of other things:
- data and coding
- abstraction in art, poetry and music
- milkshakes and French toast
Also, say hello to all the wonderful Washington Post folks!

Vote here for my lightning talk, which you can read the pitch for here.
I’m helping to teach a few workshops alongside some awesome folks like Stephanie Yiu, Connor Jennings and Jeremy Bowers. Come join the fun!
