We (Rackspace Hosting) are hosting a Data Visualization hack day on August 31st, and thought you'd like to come check it out and hack with us.
We're going to be opening up our office the whole day to have people hack and collaborate on things like D3, with a series of tech talks throughout. Food and drinks provided.
Our site is here: http://hacktheplanet.github.com/hackday/2012/08/31/data-visualization-hackday/ EventBrite invitation here: http://datavizhackday.eventbrite.com/
Questions? Interested in giving a talk? Contact Felix Sargent: felix.[masked]

it was awesome, Rackspace people were really kind, catered most amazing foods, and were very accomodating
Hi. If we RSVPed on Meetup, is it ok to not register at Eventbrite?
0 · August 30, 2012
Yeah, we understand that registration is limited on Eventbright. Feel free to show up anyway.
there are still spots open on eventbrite, so if you can register please do. otherwise, yeah, show up anyway. in the past, about 50% of registered folks show up, so although we have limited space, we also want to have a good crowd so everyone gets jostled out of their current conceptual bubbles.

Great! Thank you so much!
I just finished my first D3 project and I am very sad that I missed the registration :(
