The Worldwide Aaron Swartz Memorial Hackathons generated considerable interest and engagement, but there's more work to be done.

This is a page for coordinating this continuation, which is tentatively slated to begin Sept/Oct.

Given recent events, there will be much to discuss at the next Technoactivism Monday, but that might be the right time to get feedback from Nosebridge about interest and logistics.



I see a hackathon minimally looking something like this:

  • intro & curated pitches/presentations, mostly from activist/ngo types
  • some sort of update on work from other locations
  • time to work, for those who can find a project, maybe with simultaneous workshops
  • demos at the end, with documentation as a necessary registration step to a demo

Proposed Dates

  • Set up a event webpage - July
  • Recruit hacklabs (as hosts) and activists (as PMs) - August
  • Get signal-boosting web coverage - September
  • Run events - October

Projects to Work on


  • Nosebridge, SF
  • Boston, MA (ML?)
  • Seattle, WA (some hackerspace - willow?)
    • Talk to SeattleAttic and/or Jigsaw and/or some other place. I can ask around. 23:15, 27 June 2013 (UTC)
