Hi Everyone,

The effects of Sandy are still being felt by many people in this area and help is needed to develop solutions to ongoing problems. Please register for the #NYTechResponds Hackathon this coming weekend to show your support. Donations are also being accepted if you want to help but do not have the time.

Thanks, Jimmy
