Conversation - Hacking Open Data
Transform, Remix, Reuse!
Build on open cultural heritage collections & data
with the Library Idea Drop House
In support and celebration of the potential of open data in cultural heritage, we are hosting a mini hackfest at the Idea Drop house on Saturday, March 12th @ 1pm-4pm.
This is a one day hackathon that will bring together coders, thinkers, activists and Austin area citizens to collaboratively explore and build new ideas around open data.
Some potential projects could be:
A creative app incorporating fiction or non fiction storytelling with open images
A game that incorporates location data and images from the area
A game that educates students about fair use by allowing them to play with available images to make a social media avatar or animated gif
You can participate by yourself or in a team--the more the merrier!
Snacks and a variety of local brews and other drinks will be provided.
Huge thanks to our location partner Library Idea Drop house for hosting us and to EBSCO for supporting the event.
