Brainstorm ideas for mobile applications to benefit Midtown. Web development and design experience is welcome, but not necessary. Participate in the Midtown Buzz - Storytelling Hackathon, February 7th at 6:00pm till February 9th at 8:00pm at IPaT. Build teams and pitch your idea for a mobile application. Midtown Alliance and IPaT will award prizes for the top apps and will work with teams to help further their app development.
Midtown Buzz is an experiment in mobile innovation focused on engaging urban communities. It includes mobile platform and app development, open-source data curation, contextually aware environments, social navigation (via authentic tastemaker personas to 'feel like a local'), developer workshops, hackathons, trials, needs assessments and the creation of a Live-Work-Play "Laboratory" for exploring the potential of media technologies in creating a climate for continual innovation.
