What is the Sunlight Hackathon?
Sunlight Labs, part of the non-partisan Sunlight Foundation (one of our favorite organizations) is an open source development team that builds technology to make government more transparent and accountable. We've invited them to host a hackathon at Web 2.0 Expo, where attendees build an application that promotes transparency in government. We welcome you to join our hackathon - stop by to help out for an hour or a day, contribute to rebuilding our democracy, and meet some great folks!
This event is open to all attendees of Web 2.0 Expo. You can register for a free expo pass with the code websf09hack.
