Knight Talk: Mary Aviles

Mary Aviles (’13) Re-engineering journalism

Mary Aviles is creating Vtza, a unique service for Spanish-speaking news consumers — one that makes it easy for them to curate news in their own language. As she explains in this short talk, Aviles work sprang out of her own frustration at difficult it was to find news from multiple sources about her native Venezuela. Vtza, currently in beta, is drawing interest from Latin American news outlets and more than a dozen are providing content for its testing. To learn more visit the Vtza site.
