Featuring Adam Greenfield (Urbanscale.org), Gavin Starks (Open Data Institute), Anthony Townsend (Institute for the Future), Jaime Serra (director of infographics at La Vanguardia), Mar Cabra (International Consortium of Investigative Journalists), David Cabo (Civio Foundation) and Evgeny Morozov (author of To Save Everything, Click Here), among others.
