Hi, Marco,

My name is Natalia, I'm a brazilian journalist and researcher (and a school
of data enthusiast!), nice to meet you. :)

I completely agree with you. I had an experience in my journalism school -
I proposed a datajournalism lab that worked very well - and I think it
would be a nice "first step" to organize a list of key people/professors of
the best journalism schools in order to get them involved in the project.
If we have one person in each university available to use/improve the
school of data material, it would be a great thing! You can count on me to
organize the list from Brazil.
