Guardian data journalist James Ball is coming along to Brighton Future of News Group to talk about his adventures in data journalism with a talk titled Why Journalists Need Data and Data Needs Journalists – or – How Not to Kill Your Readers.

Before joining the Guardian James worked for Wikileaks and the Bureau of Investigative Journalism. He has interesting stories to tell about finding the stories in data and how the information reached him.

BFONG meets on Monday, May 16 in the function room upstairs at The Eagle in Gloucester Road, at 7.30pm.

It is free to come along and a great chance to meet like-minded writers, bloggers, journalists and other media folk.

Please confirm if you are attending via the Meet Up group as space is limited.

A live blog will be published at the end of the meeting and Tweets can be followed using he #bfong.

If you can’t make BFONG James is also talking about data journalism at news:rewired – noise to signal on May 27.
