Occupy Data Hackathon | Friday March 1st and Saturday March 2nd
Readers, I'm going to go to this event (since it could be right up my alley, what with the maps and timelines I've been creating, and anyhow, it would be great to have something to look forward to when February has finally ended.)
So, maybe we can have a Corrente meetup in New York, if there are any Correntians in the Greater New York area who'd want to do that?
We need non-technical people to help us. We the keen insight of people on the ground doing the work, using the systems.
Data projects like these illuminate in ways that statistics can’t. We need to open up our data to shine a light on injustice. We need the data to tell a story that can’t be refuted, dodged, or denied.
Data mining and visualization for the 99 percent!
