Takahashi Wins Scholarship to Poynter Programming Workshop
Congratulations to Corey Takahashi (Mar '10 and May '09) on receiving a scholarship from Hacks/Hackers to attend The Poynter Institute's workshop Programming for Journalists/Journalism for Programming.
Takahashi, a Los Angeles-based independent journalist who attended the KDMC's Multimedia Reporting Workshop and the Web Publishing for Independent Journalists Workshop, has multiple works in play, including an interactive multimedia reporting project focused on LA's mass transit system. Takahashi plans to apply the data and programming training gained in the Poynter workshop to a previously reported Census story on the rising economic and cultural influence of those born between 1982 and 2000, called the Millenials. It will also help Takahashi advance the build out his LA transit project.
