Great initiative, Cosmin!

You may find some data journalists in this database, in case you need to
invite people from different countries directly:

compreende tudo. Mas quando você tenta entender tudo,
não entende nada. O melhor é compreender a si mesmo,
então você compreenderá tudo."

> Hi all,
> In the past few months, we've been looking for datajournalists to help us
> out on different projects in countries we didn't know much about. To make
> it easier for everyone, we came up with the idea for a directory where
> everyone interested in collaboration can indicate their skills and PGP
> keys. Here's the pitch, you'll find the link to add your info below:
> Journalists collect more data, in more places than ever before. While we
> all know now that data is valuable, we don't all have the skills to make
> sense of it. Whether a  journalist in Kiev finding a trove of paper
> documents or a reporter in Algiers being given a database on a CD-ROM, you
> can sometimes use help from a developer, a statistician or a designer to
> get the most out of your data. Perhaps the only thing you need is context
> on the specifics of the statistics office in Canberra. Or help making sense
> of documents in a language you don't understand.
> This is why Journalism++, a network of datajournalism agencies, wants to
> build a directory of data-driven journalists. The directory lists their
> skills, preferred location and PGP key in an easy to use format. When faced
> with a data trove, any journalist, anywhere, can now securely reach out to
> a colleague who'll help her make sense of data.
> You can fill out the form here: http://bit.ly/ddj-directory
> The directory can be found here:
> http://jplusplus.github.io/global-directory
> The project is maintained by Journalism++ Cologne. You can reach us at
> hallo at jplusplus.org.
> Please help us map the global data journalists network and fill out our
> questionnaire.
> With best regards,
> Cosmin Cabulea
