We live streamed the first Cleanweb Hackathon event in San Francisco last September, and now we’re very excited that once again we’ll be live streaming the second Cleanweb Hackathon that will be held in New York City, this weekend! The “Cleanweb” is the trend of using information technology — software, the web, social media, mobile — to address resource constraints around energy, food and water.
The Cleanweb Hackathon NYC will kick off this Friday night (Jan. 20) at the Tisch School of the Arts Interactive, starting off with developers, UI experts and business folks coming together to make teams around hack ideas. Over the weekend. the teams will create their mobile or web innovation — complete with pizza and beer of course. We won’t be live streaming all that, but on Sunday afternoon, the teams will pitch their ideas to a panel of judges, and we’ll bring you live video from the pitches and judges.
Judges for the event include Union Square Ventures’ Fred Wilson, and NYC Chief Digital Officer Rachel Stern. A special guest will include United States Chief Technology Officer Aneesh Chopra (who just kicked off the Green Button initiative in the Valley).
