Times Open at the NYT: Follow the coverage on Twitter

I’m in New York today at Times Open, believed to be the first software conference at an American newspaper. The New York Times is hosting a ton of programmers, developers, and a few wannabe geeks like me to discuss the series of APIs they’ve been releasing. (I explained what APIs are and gave a preview of Times Open in a post yesterday.) There’s a lot of excitement here about the future of journalism, and I’m collecting what I can for future posts. In the meantime, you can follow my tweets on the Nieman Lab’s Twitter feed, and other attendees are tweeting as well under the #timesopen hashtag. If you have questions you want answered at the conference, leave a comment here or reply to me on Twitter.
