Join with us as we Hack For Egypt <http://hackforegypt.eventbrite.com/>!
Earlier this year, Egyptians combined technology and political activism to
revolutionary effect. After overthrowing a thirty-year dictatorship, they
face new challenges to establishing democracy. Can technology help them
through the divisive times ahead?
The Unconference and Hackathon for Egypt is an opportunity to find out. On
May 14, programmers and engineers will gather at Stanford University to meet
with Egyptian activists and discuss applications that could help their
cause. Our aim is to build a community that bridges Tahrir Square and
Silicon Valley to show what digital activism can achieve.
Bring your computers and we’ll provide the activists and the food. We’ll
combine uncomforance & hackathon formats to let the ideas flow. The d.
school venue is perfectly designed for the purpose. Come check it out!
