Hacks/Hackers Vancouver Message Board › Open Data, Open Food + Open Thoughts!
As december approaches and we all get ready to celebrate the end of 2011, I wanted to share information regarding a couple of events happening in town [plus some thoughts].
Our friend David Eaves started the International Open Data HackDay [ODHD], and this year it's happening all over the world on December 3rd. http://www.opendataday.org/ .

The good people at Foodtree has sponsored their space this year for ODHD; and they are also hosting a hackathon on Open Food Data. http://openfood.eventbrite.com/
And on Dec 1st, The Tyee is hosting a conversation about viral video and its place in media.
"Reeled In": Sharing Stories with Viral Video
So an event each for both Hacks and the Hackers! and the Foodies!
