The Flathead Valley GIS group recently talked about the idea of starting a "community" based project using the hack-a-thon concept:
As it turns out, apparently so has the Kalispell sub-group of the "Montana Programmers" Meetup.com group, and they are planning to get started this month.
For those who were interested in this idea, I highly recommend you join up with the MT Programmers Meetup and attend their first meeting on July 18. Maybe we can help bring something "spatial" (terrible pun intended) to their ideas.
Feel free to chime in below on what you think of this idea.
