  • Sharon has been finding ways to marry computers and journalism ever since creating her first dial-up bulletin board system. 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
