The New York Times Graphics Department was one of 10 recipients of the 2012 Missouri Honor Medal. For some reason the school was not able to fly all 25 of us to mid-Missouri for the banquet, so, as the lone Mizzou grad on staff, they sent me to come pick it up.
Nice hardware! (Though sad they didn’t make 25 of them…)
I also gave a talk to students about the work the department does. It’s probably too sports-heavy in retrospect, but almost every student here was wearing Cardinals gear, so maybe it’s a wash. Also it’s the first time I used Mike Bostock’s Stack.js and I’m almost positive I did it wrong, so don’t pop the hood, for your own sake.
