OccupyData NYC Hackathon

Following the success of nationally-coordinated OccupyData Hackathons in November and March, a group of New-York-based Occupy Data hackers will be creating a space for for more days of planning, discussion and implementation. The data sets from previous OccupyData and OccupyResearch events will be available, as well as some new results from an original (as-yet-unpublished) Occupy Wall Street survey.

Occupy Data is a subgroup of Occupy Research, with the aim of analyzing and visualizing datasets related to the Occupy movement. At previous hackathons, teams of people worked on separate projects, with the goal of using free and open source tools to creatively present data pertinent to the Occupy movement and the issues it has raised. Read more about previous projects, get inspired about what you might like to work on here.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
