The Tech Valley Center of Gravity in Troy is hosting an Open Data Day hackathon this Saturday, March 4. Blurbage:
Open Data Day is a collection of local gatherings of open government advocates, developers, programmers, statisticians, and citizens who want to build things with and promote the use of open data. ... Join us at Tech Valley Center of Gravity from 9AM to 3PM! In addition to a hackathon, we're planning quick talks and workshops to introduce participants to the concepts and tools essential to working with open data.
We hear from organizer Ursula Kaczmarek that there's still some space left for people who'd like to participate. Also: "The event is free and we'll provide all the coffee and sugary snacks people need to participate."
Here's how to register.
Access to public information is becoming a modern civil right. Finding ways to make this sort of info easier to access and use for all sorts of people is a worthy goal.

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
