It’s hard to work on government transparency while this is going on. And here at Sunlight Labs, we like to use our skills for good. This weekend, we’ll be supporting CrisisCamp Haiti Hackathon in any way that we can. We’re encouraging our developers to go this CrisisCamp Hackathon on Saturday, and putting incentive to it offering them compensatory time off if they show up and contribute to the various projects that will go toward relief efforts.
While the event’s location is TBD, as long as it is in the DC area, we’ll be there to help out. We’re going to host the event here at Sunlight Labs and let the CrisisCamp Hackathon folks show us what to do.
The DC tech community and the community at large should find ways to give not only their money but their talent and skill toward saving lives and finding homes this weekend. We hope that if you’re in the DC area and have some great tech skills, you’ll join us in serving the folks leading CrisisCamp, and helping folks in Haiti.
We’ll be providing space and bandwidth for the event as well. The event is hosted here in our offices at Sunlight. We hope you’ll join us.
P.S. There’s one in Silicon Valley too
