Hacking the Recession

Tomorrow I'm planning to be at "Hacking the Recession"

Theme - If we can have a Web 2.0, why can't we have a Recession 2.0 — a collaborative effort to make this downturn different – better — than the last one? How can we band together as a community to survive and thrive until the next boom and beyond?

Birkbeck College (WC1E 7HX), entrance off Torrington Square. Room 540.

Tracks so far are looking like follows:

  1. PHP hacking on Elgg modules for the Social Media vs the Recession project
  2. Python hacking on the Django based website being built for We20 project
  3. Collaborate with other hackers on developing your own crunch-busting and/or social change ideas
