Joanna Kao: 5 Ways to Talk to People

The 2014 MIT-Knight Civic Media Conference featured fourteen quick talks from conference attendees about something they learned in the past year, including one from Joanna Kao, a recent MIT computer science grad, online media editor for MIT’s student newspaper, data viz intern with the Boston Globe, and now an interactive developer for Al Jazeera America in New York.

Joanna talked about, well, talking: five ways she learned to better engage people face to face.
