Description

Come and hack with an all-star cast of developers, entrepreneurs, journalists, and media thinkers at the MIT Center for Civic Media.

The Knight-Mozilla OpenNews project is sponsoring at 24-hour hack day as a lead-in to the 2013 MIT-Knight Civic Media Conference. While the conference is invite-only, the hack day is open to talented developers, civic data experts, and journalists who want to spend their weekend working with others to build amazing things.

Following the conference theme of "Insider/Outsider," this hack day will focus on creating new tools for liberating data sets and creating a collection of newly opened civic data.

If you have ideas for new tools for data liberation or want to scrape and open data sets, sign up for a weekend of hacking and building with us!
