White House announces National Day of Civic Hacking, declares open season on government data
Publicly-available Census or Department of Energy data can be a powerful tool in the right hands, and the White House wants to help get it there. The inaugural National Day of Hacking from June 1st to June 2nd is inviting everyone, regardless of experience to come together and help “liberate open data,” building software that puts the government’s meticulously-compiled facts and figures to good use.
