Jer Thorp: New York, New York
In this presentation, Jer dives deep into two large-scale projects he has worked on over the last year in New York City. First, he talked about Project Cascade, a real-time analytic tool built to examine how New York Times content is shared through Twitter. Second, he discussed his work designing a name arrangement algorithm for the 9/11 Memorial in Manhattan. He walked through collaborative processes, admit to a series of spectacular failures and ultimately show how custom software tools can be made to solve extraordinary problems.
