Hey all,

I just wanted to announce a couple things.

First, Kristina has coordinated to have the creator of, a
D3 in-browser coding environment, give a talk here in Minneapolis. is pretty amazing and this talk should be very exciting
for anyone interested in D3.  It looks like it is technically full,
but maybe some seats will open up or people will drop out as it gets

Second, next Saturday and Sunday (June 01 and 02) is Hack for MN, a
National Day of Civic Hacking event here in the Twin Cities.  Read

On behalf of Open Twin Cities and DevJam Studios, I'd like to invite
everybody to register for Hack for MN, the Minnesota version of the
National Day of Civic Hacking. Hack for MN will be a two day gathering
of citizens, community organizations, public servants, designers, and
developers who will work together on new and improved technology
projects to serve the Twin Cities.

This event will include remarks from leaders in government IT, include
the CIO of Minneapolis, the CIO of St. Paul, the Innovation Officer
for the State of Minnesota IT, and the Secretary of State of
Minnesota. There will also be small presentations about government
tech and innovation scheduled through out the hackathon, and mentors
from private organizations to help teams frame and guide their
projects. And, thanks to DevJam Studios, there will be food for all
who come.

At the end of the event, judges will select the most innovative
projects and award opportunities to talk about their projects with
those who lead government tech organizations, including government
CIOs, heads of technology non-profits, and executives in tech
companies that serve governments.

Most importantly, there will be lots of folks with ideas, experience,
and skills, eager to build something new and interesting for their
community over two days. This event is open for all, and is not just
for coders. Everybody is encourage to come and share their ideas for
civic technologies, knowledge of their communities, creativity,
communication skills, project management skills, design skills,
development skills, or anything that you think can help make your
community a better place to live. The only requirement we have for
participants is passion in their community.

If you're interested in the technology that you use to interact with
your government, please visit http://www.hackfo...­ to register for
this event. If you have any ideas for projects to work on over this
two day event, please submit your idea to
http://www.hackfo...­ , and vote for other projects
that you think will help the Twin Cities.
