Dirty Databases
Back from my first IRE conference! After half a week of learning about new advances in computer mapping and how investigations can drive your ratings, the largest group of journalism nerds I've ever seen in one place crowded into a suite to party -- investigative reporter style. We wondered --- do people hook up at IRE as they do at other conventions? If so, the Computer Assisted Reporting related pickup lines must be great...

"Under the [insert name here] information act, I hereby request access to your records."
"Could I merge my PDF into your spreadsheet?"
"Let's play hide the column."

Nerds rule.
