Hi all,

The 2nd Aaron Swartz Memorial Worldwide Hackathon is this weekend at
15 locations worldwide, including at the Internet Archive and
Noisebridge in SF (see schedule below). Come and help out with
projects for social/political reform, information freedom, preserving
our rights on the Internet, and making the world we want to live in.
Everyone is welcome, regardless of whether or not you code.

The weekend-long hackathon in SF kicks off with a ceremony in Aaron's
honor at the Internet Archive on Friday, followed by hacking
throughout the weekend at Noisebridge. You can see some of the
proposed projects here:

We already have plenty of people who've volunteered to lead projects,
teach crypto, and give presentations on technoactivism-related topics,
but it would be great to have a couple volunteers to help with A/V at
Noisebridge. (Namely, setting up the video feed to livestream our
hackathon to the other hackathon locations around the world.)
