ProPublica at Netexplo

A few weeks ago, I had the honor of joining my colleagues Charlie Ornstein and Tracy Weber in Paris to receive a Netexplo award for our work with Dollars for Docs. Check out the presentation video they prepared for the awards ceremony (held at UNESCO), featuring us as bobbleheads.

The easiest way to explain Netexplo is that one of the organizers told me that it hopes to be a South by Southwest of Paris. Check out the quirky trophy we got:

This was my first trip to Paris so of course I took photos like a shutterbug tourist. You can view them on my Flickr account:
