On June 1 – as part of the National Day of Civic Hacking – Super Happy Block Party will be held at TheClubhou.se. Augusta’s goal is to bring hackers and artists together to help build a greater Augusta. They’re planning to have several curated challenges, but participants will be encouraged to create their own projects as well, using available data. They’ll be focusing primarily on Health, Happiness and Open Public Data. (The party will last from 1-9p and the hackathon will run from 1p-1a.)
About #HackForChange — The 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.
The event will leverage the expertise and entrepreneurial spirit of those outside federal, state and local government to drive meaningful, technology-based solutions for federal, state and local government. It demonstrates what’s possible when we all work together to strengthen our society and our lives. YOU can make a difference no matter where you live.
