Developers, designers, journalists:

Join Eyebeam Art + Technology Center & Hacks/Hackers NYC on Nov. 6 & 7 for The Great Urban Hack, a two-day, overnight, open-source hackathon that celebrates the city.

Design, report on, code and create projects to help New Yorkers get the information they need while strenghtening a sense of community.

Whether it's news, politics, government information, arts, culture, education, transportation, environment or health related — any journalism or technology project that helps residents connect to their communities is welcome.

We'll feed you throughout the hackathon, while a program of optional presentations will keep your brain (and your energy) going. Bring an open mind, a possible open-source project idea and a willingness to collaborate.
