    Hello PHL Hackers:

    We are working to see how innovations are created and spread through hackathon competitions. We're curious to know how designers and developers can produce software/websites given the time restriction, with the focus on technological enablers such as gits and APIs.

    We're looking for some hackers to help us understand these innovation dynamics.

    Here's the link to the website for potential interview subjects & a mini-survey.

      I'd appreciate you passing this out and along to whoever you think appropriate. Thanks!

    Oh Boy... I thought I had a class on Wednesday nights but just realized it was on Tuesdays. Can't change it because it's my advisor (Youngjin)'s class. Fall semester began today and I may be able to come once in a while during September. We have a flexible schedule from October so I'll be able to make more regularly.

    Did this just move to Wednesday? Will it be that way going forward. If so, I'm going to have to change my class schedule.

      Corey, I think I heard something last week about Jarv.us's company retreat, maybe that's why it was moved to Wednesday. But I'm also wondering, too.

      This week we are meeting Wednesday. I know that class is starting back, so I will send out a poll later this week to determine the best time for us to meet!
