oh hello again

so we changed the date hack day will be held. sorry about that – this
time it's for real. :). it's all for the greater good: we did it to
give everyone more time to plan and to have a bigger space in which to
hack on your ideas

please mark off saturday, february 19th, 2011 in your calendars. the
good people at general assembly will be co-presenting hack day with us
in their brand new space in nyc [1][2]. we'll have all sorts of food
and great wifi and presentation areas. a fuller schedule of the day's
events to follow shortly

Hey Naveen,
I won't make it out to NYC by 2/19, but I would like to participate - any chance there'll be a webcast, live (comment) stream or some way to still feel a part of the action? I'll for-go the food and wifi for remote participation, heh --

Doh!

The 5th was better for me. I am teaching on the 19th. Is this a hack
"day" or hack "day/evening"?

Thanks,
Michael

+1 to remote participation... because you guys don't have enough
problems to solve.

Well, I used the Feb 5th date as a good excuse to check out NYC, and
already have hotel and transportation booked... Can't make it up on
the 19th. Any way I can stop by the office and check it out, get a
sticker, badge or something? Will be in town the 5th, 6th and 7th.

Cheers,

I have a few ideas I'm entertaining, but would need a hacker to join. If anyone knows of any who'd be interested, let me know. I'd ask my ruby roommate but I'm pretty sure he'd me for his time.

FWIW, we are planning on doing a foursquare hackday in Montreal
somewhere in March.

Nothing official yet, but I had so many good foursquare API
discussions in the last few weeks with local developers that we
decided to make it happen.

It will most probably be a smallish event (5-25 participants) but if
there is any advice/support you guys can provide it would be nice.

Did you guys distribute tickets yet? I registered yesterday and
haven't seen anything yet.

You could always do your hack day in combination with a Twestival event!

Sorry I hope this hasn't already been covered elsewhere but what are
we expected to bring to the hackday? What will be available?

Thanks,
Will
