Hack for Change Seattle

10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday, May 31.
Bertha Knight Landes Room, Seattle City Hall.

The goal: bring together technologists, entrepreneurs, social activists, designers, and citizens to address civic issues in Seattle.

Anyone can participate. You don’t have to be an expert in technology, but you do have to care about your neighborhood and community.

The Seattle event is one of dozens planned around the country, and will be part hackathon, part unconference.

Schedule and updates at codeforseattle.org/hackforchange.

Have a project to pitch? there's a wiki page for that!

    Hey all-
    I posted a mini documentary on my blog (via youtube). It focuses on the bike and pedestrian counter project with cameos from our host, organizers and sponsors…

    I had a really great time at this, thanks everyone! But I do wish that the WiFi had been more reliable... or that there had been ethernet cables available.

    Being able to team up with such skilled tech people to learn and build together was a great experience.

    Food was great. Projects were varied and high quality. Host, organizers, food all great. As a policy guy, the intro speech was indecipherable to me, but that's my problem! Still, could've tacked on some content that would resonate even for tech-illiterate policy-savvy folks like me.
