NYC Aaron Swartz Hackathon
18:00 Friday, November 8 - 20:00 Saturday, November 9
630 Flushing Ave, Brooklyn. Register (optional)
Inspired by the work he did and the people he touched, we are
organizing recurring hackathons at locations all over the world in
memory of Aaron Swartz. The next set will be synchronized on the
weekend of November 8-10, 2013. The event will bring together the
varied communities that Aaron touched to figure out how the important
problems of the world connect, and to share the load of working on
The NYC Event
We will host the event 18:00 Friday to 20:00 Saturday at the Pfizer
building at 630 Flushing Ave in Brooklyn:

through a parking lot and under a tattered blue awning. Once inside,
there will be signage to orient you to the hackathon location. Call rmo
at +16072795957 if you're having trouble finding us.
We will meet Friday evening with a book scanner, an internet archivist,
and more. After a short unconference and live-streaming of the SF
reception, we will get to work through Saturday.
Friday will be dedicated to the exploration and examination of the NYC
groups Aaron has touched. A few curated talks will lead the evening,
with lots of time for breakout sessions for more in-depth examination
of projects and communities. Please mail
