Jacob: I’ve been following you on Twitter now for a while, but this is the first chance that you and I are getting to have an actual conversation, so I’d like to start from square one. Who are you? How did you find your way to working in media?
Sherrell: That’s such a great question. I like to describe myself as a data journalist, as someone who is just naturally curious about the state of the world, and particularly how innovation can come from anywhere. I’m wholly interested in those who are coming from backgrounds that aren’t necessarily traditional and finding ways to create, build, support, and develop these innovation hubs that are emerging out of the rubble.
