National Day of Civic Hacking: June 1-2, 2013

The feds just dropped this fun day out:

Quote

National Day of Civic Hacking is a national event that will take place June 1-2, 2013, in cities across the nation. The event will bring together citizens, software developers, and entrepreneurs from all over the nation to collaboratively create, build, and invent new solutions using publicly-released data, code and technology to solve challenges relevant to our neighborhoods, our cities, our states and our country. National Day of Civic Hacking will provide citizens an opportunity to do what is most quintessentially American: roll up our sleeves, get involved and work together to improve our society.


They are working with:
http://codeforamerica.org/
http://www.rhok.org/

I am not fully sure how I will be able to help but I think I may try to spearhead something in my own town. They are advocating something like a 'hackathon', 'brigade party', or 'block party'.

Is anyone else looking into this?

I just threw out a linkedin message to my college's alumni association... let's see if I can get them on board and then we have a facility!
