WorldCat Hackathon, November 7-8 in NYC

WorldCat Mashathon NYC T-ShirtThe news is already out, but we definitely need to announce it here as well -- November 7-8 in New York City we will be having our first WorldCat Hackathon at the Science, Industry, and Business Library of NYPL. Our co-host is NYPL Labs. It should be a lot of fun and all of us at OCLC Grid Services are very much looking forward to it. We think anytime you get a roomful of hackers together and give them access to a lot of interesting data and web services, cool things can happen. Although we have quite a few services to offer, participants will of course not be limited to using only those. Any data source, web service, or application is fair game for mashing up as far as we're concerned. If it's legal, go for it. If it isn't legal, just don't tell us. There is a $30 charge, but all participants will get a t-shirt (see pic) as well as breakfast and lunch both days.
