Hacks'n'Hackers Day at RBI

Anyone with even a passing interest in data journalism will be aware of the hacks’n’hackers days that have been going on all over the country. Well, today is RBI’s turn to host one, which is being run by the good folks at ScraperWiki.

After a morning briefing, liveblogged by Sarah Booker, the teams have formed and are hard at work scraping data and building projects from it. I’ll try to chronicle what happens as the day goes on, but here’s some photos of the day in progress:
