With Occupy movements popping up everywhere, some of us thought we might try our hands at an occupation. But instead of risking arrest on a street or a park, we'll be online, building tools to support the organizers and occupiers on the ground.
The Occupy groups have ideas for some cool organizing projects and web tools, but in some cases have not have the capacity to build them. Enter: you. This is an opportunity for use your tech and new media skills to help the 99%. Join us at the New Organizing Institute this Saturday to connect with like minded people and build something new in the world.
Pizza & Beer (& healthier food options) will be provided.
Project Ideas are being discussed here: http://goo.gl/mod/lnu1
We will be networking with the other OccupyHackathon groups throughout the US
