Yesterday and today I spent my time at OccupyData’s hackathon at the CUNY graduate center, where Theorizing the Web 2013 just so happened to be taking place. Each deserves their own blog post, and I’ll get to it tomorrow I suppose. I just realized that I hadn’t really put much on the research I’ve been doing up on the blog – I’ve included the preliminary paper I did along in a new page under the Papers & Projects tab.
Also, since I haven’t really been updating the blog with my notes on the work (I have over 60 separate notes with thousands of words and lots of clippings in each), I thought I’d provide a taste of some of the things worth checking out that I’ve come across researching hackathons so far.
