Aaron Swartz Hackathon - Seattle

Inspired by the work he did and the people he touched, we are organizing recurring hackathons at locations all over the world in memory of Aaron Swartz. The next set will be synchronized on the weekend of November 8-10, 2013. The event will bring together the varied communities that Aaron touched to figure out how the important problems of the world connect, and to share the load of working on those problems.

    Hey everyone, just a note that I'm now away for a funeral and sadly will miss this :| ...AaronSw was a friend and sometimes comrade of ours in #openscience. All the best with the weekend. BG

    I’ll be in Seattle for the Aaron Swartz Hackathon.

    Hoping to finish a port of RECAP to IE — a small step towards Aaron's dream of freeing PACER.

    (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aaron_Swartz#PACER)
    (And yes, a lot of lawyers / law firms use IE.)

    I'm admittedly a novice at Windows programming. Would love to team up with hackers familiar with .NET / C# / BHOs / etc. to finish the job right.

    Please shoot me a message or find me at the hackathon!

    Hi, Are there any specific projects that people will be working on ?
    I will be coming far from Crossroads, Bellevue, so just want to find out what exactly are the plans for this hackathon before RSVPing.

  • Brian G.

    Of course, John and there are many non coding, even non technical projects one could work on. For one example, improving related Wikipedia articles.

    Hey, I am not a hacker. Are non hackers allowed to attend these events if they just really support hackers and want to watch them work?

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
