Today in Miami, we’re gathering 17 journalists, engineers, and entrepreneurs to help us review the applications in the latest Knight News Challenge, on data.

By the end of the day, we hope to have 10-12 finalists that we’ll examine more deeply over the next few weeks. We expect to bring about five of those forward for consideration by Knight Foundation trustees at its September meeting and to publicly announce the winners shortly thereafter.

We’d like to thank the following people who have taken two days to join us:

We closed the Knight News Challenge: Data in June with over 881 applications and have blogged about some of the themes we noticed.
