Hi!

If you are looking for a chance to try out the information from Maggie Cawley's GIS presentation, work on another project that you think could make Baltimore better, or get to know others who are working with civic data, please attend Hack for Change, a Baltimore hackathon that is the local edition of the National Day of Civic Hacking. The announcement for the event is below.

I will be there and hope that you'll come join us!

Join us June 1 for Hack for Change Baltimore, the local edition of the National Day of Civic Hacking. Across America, civic hacking events that weekend will provide any citizen with the opportunity to do what is most quintessentially American: roll up our sleeves, get involved, and work together to improve our neighborhoods, our lives, and our government.

  • Liberate open data that can inform better problem solving in every community.
  • Engage citizens to contribute to changing their communities and cities through open source, open data, entrepreneurship and code development.
  • Demonstrate a commitment to the principles of transparency, participation, and collaboration to fuel innovation.
  • Exercise the interest of government in using open data and technology, in partnership with others, to address your local community’s felt needs.
  • Promote Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education by encouraging students to utilize open technology for solutions to real challenges.
  • Encourage large scale partnership and mutual understanding.

Sound good to you? Then register to attend. It's only $10 for the weekend including food and beer! You can also share your ideas or check out what other folks want to work on.

Need more convincing?  Lots of information is posted here or you can contact Sharon Paley with questions.

Hope to see you on June 1st!
