Let's have a trip to Ottawa and find ways to leverage the power of Hadoop in bringing out unprecedented insight out of open data.

    You're right, a main focus on UX is not really worth the trip to Ottawa at the moment. :) Thanks for the tip William!

    Hi Marius, actually I'm not in Markham. I'm on the Bloor subway line. I decided not to go because I heard from guys in Ottawa this will be "heavily weighted towards UX" which as a hard core coding machine I have zero interest in. Sorry

    Hi William, happy to see the Open Data Day Hackfest has caught your interest!

    How do you plan to get (from Markham, I assume) to Ottawa on Saturday? I don't have a car, but if carpooling sounds good for you, count me in, including expense sharing.
