Learning about (Machine) Learning
I have been spending the bulk of my OpenNews fellowship learning about _machine_ learning, which incidentally has also helped me learn about learning _in general_. I'll share some of the insights I've gathered in how to best approach learning a new, difficult, and sprawling topic like machine learning so that others can enter the field. (Talk will be based off of this post: http://spaceandtim.es/opennews/learning_about_learning)

Don't learn computer science
In journalism, often, people talk about how computer science departments are failing the media industry by not providing relevant courses. How learning Java is not as useful as python. But computer science is not code. Don't ask people to learn computer science. I studied computer science and really did not learn to code until I started coding regularly. This keynote is about realizing that computer science and coding are entirely different things and how what I learned can help others to start coding.
