Today’s bonus: A great place to find zip codes for New York City neighborhoods.  Could come in handy when using ReferenceUSA or looking for Census Bureau stats, among other things.

November 10th notes

October 30th, 2009 by Jack

On November 10th, I’ll present just a brief lesson, as we and all the other Craft I classes will attend a special research presentation on backgrounding people using social networking sites, courtesy of the New York Times.  With that in mind, I’d like you to peruse some of the material below.

Speaking of November 10th, I want to remind you that’s also the deadline for APPROVED pitches on the research-inspired enterprise assignment.  That means you need to start pitching BEFORE 11/10.  I’ve yet to receive a pitch, and I’ll be out of town next week, which means I may not get back to you as quickly as I normally would.  Remember that is a treasure trove of possible ideas.  I just discovered another gem last week that’s not even on my handout.  Maybe you could uncover federal stimulus projects in your CD and compare them to other CDs?

Today’s bonus: David Montalvo, a.k.a. Mr. Millburn, has another winner on “The Local” blog for the New York Times.

Congrats to David Montalvo!

I meant to post this sooner, but better late than never.  David recently had a story and slideshow about the 12th annual Millburn Fire Department Open House on “The Local” blog for the New York Times.  Make sure to check out the photos, which he took himself.  David’s a regular one-man band!

Today’s bonus: As a proud New York Times blogger myself, feel free to check out my latest.  If you accuse me of “statistical overload,” I may have to plead guilty!

Double bonus: Don’t forget Tuesday’s “due diligence” lesson tips on dates of birth.  Try BirthDetails to find ’em and Can I Vote? to confirm.
