Hackathon09 - Lynn computer nerds, you out there?


I wonder if Lowell Gray (shore.net) or any other tech companies in Lynn (are there any?) would host one of these. I'm sure we have other techies that might attend who live in the city.

It's all about opening up government to the citizens and using technology to drive that effort. If you can get free community led efforts around this, that would be a great way to do it in the face of budget cuts.

What do we think, Downtown Lynners?

Take Mayor Elect, Judy Flanagan Kennedy's idea of putting the budget online. Maybe there are interesting ways of presenting that data to get our public involved in processing and submitting ideas for improvement. What else would be useful from an open kind of Lynn local government?
