Hey guys, I apologize if you feel like you have been spammed. We sincerely try to get the word out because we know people love our event. We are an independently run hackathon and the only corporate thing about us is some of the support we get.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Jon

Fair enough.

To conclude:
    - If the community feels like chatting, it's not spam.
    - If the community feels like showering the list with self-serving messages, it is spam.
    - If someone wants to share a hacker related video, it's not spam
    - If someone wants to share a place to rent office spam, it is spam.

People shouldn't feel hesitant to write this list if they've got hacker culture in mind.  Andrew and I are intentionally trying to create a community here.  Not just a mailing list.
