On the first weekend of June, 2013, hundreds of programmers, designers, data analysts, local non-profits, and community organizers gathered at the University of Massachusetts Integrated Sciences Building for the Civic Hackathon. By combining technology, data, and good intentions, Hack For Western Mass (as a part of the National Day of Civic Hacking) has done its part to encourage community involvement and partnership through technology and social media. Below are some interviews with Hackathon participants. Footage by Jon Reed.
