Hacks for Democracy

Hi everyone,

Hope you're having a great summer. Thanks to everyone who came out to the Open Data event last week! Technically Philly had a write up and video of part of the event. We're busy planning events for this fall, but wanted to let you know about an upcoming event.

Azavea will be hosting Hacks for Democracy September 15-16 at Venturef0rth, with a pre-hackathon event and follow-up hack evenings at Azavea's offices. It's a hackathon focused specifically on projects related to elections and politics. Projects not unlike Ad Hawk, which launched from Sunlight Labs yesterday after Bob Lannon brought the idea to a Hacks/Hackers Philly meetup last fall and began working on it at Random Hacks of Kindness.

Do you have an idea for a project to help bring transparency to politics? Submit your project statements now. You can also register for the event online.

Keep up with the event via the #Hacks4D hashtag. I'll be there with OpenNews, which is a sponsor of the event, and hope you can make it too. If not, look for other Hacks/Hackers members at the Online News Association happy hour September 4 and keep an eye out for other H/H Philly events this fall.

Thanks!

Erika
