Journos and Coders Meet Up to Hack An iPad Storytelling App

Hacks/Hackers Unite is bringing together journalists and media makers with hackers and designers this weekend to build the killer media app for the iPad and other tablet devices.

The focus for the first Hacks/Hackers Unite event, produced in partnership with KQED and co-sponsored by the Knight Digital Media Center at UC Berkeley, will be to push the boundaries of journalistic storytelling for tablet devices, such as the iPad.

Hacks/Hack is a cross professional association of journalists and technologists interested in exploring digital technologies to filter and visualize information and tell stories.

The event will be held at the KQED offices in San Francisco May 22-23, 2010. More details are available at: http://unite.hackshackers.com/
