Meet to hack and work on the Hack for Change event!

Let's spend half the time working out details of the June 1 event and half the time catching up with each other and working on projects.

At this meetup we could sign up for duties that need to be accomplished to get stuff rolling on the June 1 event.


We need to work on a few things:

Sign-up form (maybe we just do this through

Event website


Requesting data sets from the city, county, state.

Approaching companies / organizations about sponsorship.

    I rushed over and got in on the tail end of the meeting... Good to meet everyone!! Update: Sent off a request for permission to make this a RHoK Global event too. They would like names / emails of other organizers -- I gave up Seth's, but said I'd need to ask permission for others.

    I had something come up last minute so I can't be there but will definitely participate in the 6/1 event. I'll also be making a big push on the lobby scraping over the next couple of weeks.

    I won't be able to make this event, however, I'd like to find out more about the June event.

    On June 1 we'll be using the Bertha Landes Knight Room in City Hall. The city of Seattle is having an open house this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in that room – it would be a good opportunity to go check out the space and also meet folks in city government. I'll probably check it out before heading over to Metrix.

    Eeek. I just noticed that this is at the same time as a long-standing obligation, that lasts til 3pm. I might be able to get to Metrix at 3:30pm, but can't guarantee that. Sorry!

    Just noticed a conflict with another event that I shouldn't miss...

    I can't make it again but I hope to participate beforehand with brainstorming and planning.

    I added a poll where you can say whether first and third Saturdays work for you:

    This is on the first Saturday of the month. Does first and third Saturdays still work for people? If so, I'll set it up to repeat. If not, let's figure out some other days.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
