The Boston Hacks/Hackers Meetup is hosting a hackathon for building apps based on OpenBlock, to “figure out what cool things we can do with Boston data”, as Joel Abrams of the Boston Globe puts it. Even if you don’t live in Boston, it might be worth a trip if you’re interested in hacking with OpenBlock.
The hackathon will be October 30, 2010 from noon to 8pm, at the new MIT Media Lab building, which is a really interesting place. Sponsored by the Knight News Challenge.
