Join us for an evening of hacking, building, and meme-making! At this hackathon, we’ll be working on making new online tools, resources, and graphics for people to use and spread the word about the threats of the TPP.
WHEN: Tuesday, November 17 5:00pm ~ late
WHERE: First Trinity Lutheran Church, 4th and E Sts., NW and worldwide* (check back here closer to the event date for details on how to participate remotely)
WHO: Activists, hackers, artists, hackers, and tinkerers. No technical background required.
*** If you plan to work on a project, please bring a laptop with you. ***
Here are some sample project ideas:
* TPP Quiz: A way for people to become acquainted with the problems of these deals and help them become better at conveying the threats to their friends and family.
* Inspect the Text: A tool to highlight portions of the text and how they would affect the public interest, so that people can see what language in the actual text translates to specific regulatory concerns. It could also reveal which industries may have lobbied for or would benefit from this language.
* Media/Graphic Repository: A platform where all shareable images, videos, and other media can be put in one place for ease of reference and use. Ideally, this would also have share buttons and also have a way to specify usage licenses (like Creative Commons).
