For our last hacknight of the year, we are going to have three special guests.

He will share a few lessons from the Knight Foundation-funded BeNeighbors.org Steve is the Executive Director of E-Democracy.org and a White House Champion of Change for Open Government.
John Martin Richardson, @richardsonjm, will demo mycitibike.com, an application for predicting future bike and rack availability. You can grab the code on GitHub.
