How can we use data and technology to empower average voters and counter the influence of big money on politics? Our Bicoastal Datafest is Feb. 2 & 3 but you can start the brainstorming now.

Story
Tagline
I'm a journalist in Washington, DC
Introduction
Went to a Catholic high school that no longer exists in a city whose nickname is obsolete (hardly any steel mills left in the former Steel City). Two-time member of the Dead Newspaper Society. Can't stop thinking about tomorrow because someone keeps erasing my past. Ain't that America, after all?
