For anyone interested, data.world will visit the iSchool this Friday and they love our students! Opportunities for students and faculty. Come one, come all!
More info about their goals/organization is below
An Austin startup called data.world, co-founded by Brett Hurt, is interested in doing some user testing of an alpha version of their site next week here at the iSchool. data.world is working to build an online community and repository for datasets and has sought insights from several of our faculty, has hired two of our students thus far, and is generally interested in forging a relationship with us both for our data organizing skills and because many of us would be likely users of such a system.
