Digest #200

After 199 digests, we're still cranking out the news you need to know. This is digest #200! Thanks, as always, to our supporting partners!

We have news from Cosmic, Blix, Looker (as they kick off their JOIN 2017 data conference in SF tomorrow), and UCSC's venerable Sci Comm program. We have a sweet story by a local web services provider who saved the day when disaster -- literally -- struck a global non-profit. And, be sure to check out our Q&A with Wallace J. Nichols, a recent speaker at the Santa Cruz New Tech Meetup, and author of a best-selling book, Blue Mind.

And there's more. Scroll down and start reading.
