I am very excited to announce Visualizing Neighborhoods, a Hackathon
for Good on May 25th at the Minneapolis Central Library 9AM to 6PM.
Organized by the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA) and
consulting from many local groups, this is going to be a very awesome
event.

As Javascripters, this will be a great opportunity to do some data
visualization in Javascript (think D3, Leaflet, and more) that will
help our communities, as well as have fun and meet new people.

===================
Visualizing Neighborhoods is a day-long event to bring together
neighborhood leaders, technologists, data visualizers, designers,
artists, scientists, civil servants, and anyone else interested to
explore how data can be used for research, analyzing, mapping,
outreach, engagement, and communication in our neighborhoods.  The
goals are to start conversations, build community, experiment, and
prototype projects for neighborhoods or localized groups.

And for those that may not have the time to be at the event all day,
we will be creating spaces so groups can consult with each other.  Are
you a neighborhood organizer that needs some tips on technologies to
help communicate with your neighborhood better?  Are you a developer
that has the coding chops but not quite sure what problem to solve?
Are you a storyteller, but just not sure where a good dataset is?
