JSConf 2013 Speaker: JavaScript Journalism

I'm honored to be accepted as a speaker at JSConf 2013. I'll be speaking on JavaScript Journalism.

It is time that news stories told with JavaScript get recognized as a form of journalism. It took years for photo journalism to get the recognition it deserves, now is the time to recognize JS Journalism. 
Most news organizations presented election news using JavaScript. News home pages often have more JS than text. 
A bit of history. A bit of academia. A bit of current news. A few guesses about the future. But nothing about the future of newspapers.
UPDATE: Here is the slide deck and examples.
