Hack for Change Was Great


Hack for ChangeA quick note of thanks and congratulations to all those who participated in last weekend’s Hack for Change event. Timball and I were in SF for the hackathon, and I know I speak for us both when I say it was thrilling to see so many smart people working on interesting and important problems.

The folks over at Tokbox have a great roundup of links to the various entries — and I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the Ruby gem that Code For America’s Erik Michaels-Ober cooked up for Sunlight’s Real-Time Congress API (thanks, Erik!).

All in all, a great event — many thanks to the good folks at change.org for making it happen.
