Week 2 Wrap up

Ok Jammers, week 2 is on the books. Tweet me (@fwdmedia) a picture of your hack-in-progress or your idea and I'll do everything I can to help you out (except write your code). My brian is full of datasets and ideas!

Chris, from our title sponsor Socrata, put together a demo video in which he makes an open data mashup in 10 minutes. Everything is linked from the blog post including the GitHub repos. So, now you have no excuse not to make something!

BTW, the judging panel is made up of Chris Metcalf (Socrata), Tom Schenk Jr. (City of Chicago), Neil Fantom (World Bank Open Data Initiative), Shaida Badiee (Open Data Watch), and Noel Hidalgo (BetaNYC). Google 'em.

This gif is not an 'open data' mashup, but it is open Data.

One more thing! We just opened signups for our sports hackathon: Connect with Your Team, powered by Twitter. #gametime
