    Awesome meetup tonight, I wish I could have stayed for longer. Victor, you mentioned you were looking into platforms for collaboration besides hackpad. Have you thought about Sense? https://senseplatform.com It looks very promising.

      Actually I just realized it was Joyce who talked about hackpad :)

      Thanks Alex -- Took a quick look at it... it's still in 'private' beta, yes? Do you think we should bet on it / is it ready for prime time? It does seem to offer a lot of what we need.

    Thanks for the great event tonight. I seem to have lost my TTC card on my way out the door. Has anyone seen it kickin' around?

    Hey Data Do-Gooders, the waitlist has really grown for next Wed. night (Jan. 15th) and we'd like to make sure that as many ppl as possible can attend -- So, if your RSVP has changed from a Yes to a Maybe or a No, can you please update your status? Then we can open up some more spots for people who really want to attend and are sure that they can make it. Thanks!

      Welcome Nick. It's about helping other NGO/NFPs with the data they have and are not quite sure what to do with.

    Hi! I'm really interested in finding out more about the tools and techniques that will be utilized for the next DataThon event, as well as participating in the next one. However, I have a class that evening--any chance I could be added to a mailing list to get more info, or get in touch with someone who could give me some additional information?

      Hi Rowan, Unfortunately, we don't yet have the capacity to keep a maling list going. We are in the midst of getting our website desgined and coded, once that is complete - we will have a very easy touch point for you. For the moment being, just check back to the meetup group every so often.

  • Saad

    This will be the first DataThon I'll be attending. Anything I should come prepared with?

    December 20, 2013

    • Victor A.

      This one in particular is not a DataThon, this is a meetup prior to a DataThon to get everyone engaged and thinking about the tools they may want to use in March's DataThon.

    I can't make this one, any hope of a YouTube upload after the fact? How 'bout if I just drop off my video-camera the week before and pick it up again the week following?

    November 29, 2013

    • Victor A.

      Unfortunately, going to have to say no to recording it - it really dilutes attendance.

      January 7, 2014

  • Arthur Z.

    What is the objective?

    November 29, 2013

    • Victor A.

      We want to make sure that this community has all the tools and shares their learnings about those tools - with which to perform the best service for our Not For Profit / NGO friends during the DataThons.
