She's written about technology for the Middlesex News and Computerworld, where she won an ASBPE national gold award for investigative reporting. She is currently Director of Editorial Data & Analytics at IDG ... and somewhat obsessed with R. Her book Practical R for Mass Communication & Journalism should be out within a year. @sharon000
