This inspired Meetups in New York
We stand together, so why can't we hack together? Come join us and help us to grow and expand the Occupy Wall St movement! The format is simple. We'll occupy Meetup HQ and hack on programming projects related to the movement, whether they be our own creations, improvements to Occupy Together's global hub and directory or banding together to knock out a task for the NYCGA or FLO/Internet Working group. Since our goal is to knock out new technology and modify existing solutions that need refinement, it'd be best if you come with laptop in tow and ready to write some code.
Members of the Meetup Everywhere API team will be there. Others that support us will be there. Will you be there? P.S. We'll be there all day, but we understand you might not be able to be. That's OK! Just come a bit later. We're going to wrap it up around 9PM -- Plenty of time to get something great done.
We've got a wiki on github (https://github.com/meetup/occupy-together-hackathon/wiki) feel free to share your ideas for things to work on.
