We are thrilled to announce that we will be joining USA.gov, Measured Voice and Simple Geo to host a 1.USA.gov hack day in New York, Washington D.C., San Diego and San Francisco on Friday, July 29th. We’ll be hosting the New York branch of the hackathon at our office fortress in the Meatpacking District at 6pm. Just bring a computer, and we'll provide pizza, caffeine, and general merriment.
This promises to be an extra-magical hackathon, as the realtime bitly clickstream for the 1.USA.gov project has been made available to the public, and will be documented on the USA.gov site. This is the first time that a realtime feed of bitly click data has been mirrored and made available for your hacking pleasure, and we’re incredibly excited to see what you do with it!
Details about the other three locations is available on USA.gov’s blog. And even if you can’t make it in person, we’d love to see what you’re working on; Tweet your projects with the hashtag #1USAgov, and feel free to contact us at [masked] some inspiration? The USA.gov team put together a proof of concept visualizing geolocation and user agent data for June 2011 1.USA.gov clicks.
We hope to see you soon!
