Civic Hacker Meetup Tomorrow, January 12th

Calling all frozen civic hackers in NE Wisconsin! You are warmly welcomed and encouraged to show up for the regional civic hacking meetup at Appleton Coworking tomorrow, January 12, 2016, from 7 to 9 PM (space will be open by 6:30 PM).

If you’ve participated in a previous civic hacking event, such as the 2015 National Day of Civic Hacking or one of the monthly meetups like the one on August 19th last year, or if you have been doing civic hacking of some type on your own, it will be fun to have you involved with the January 12th meetup.

If you haven’t done civic hacking before, or if you never even heard of civic hacking, come on down to Appleton Coworking -- we’ll answer all your questions about what the concept is and how we’re hacking to have fun and make NE Wisconsin a better place to live. We’ll get you involved with an existing civic hack, like “Is it recycling week?,” or help you get started on a new civic hack.

Appleton Coworking is located at 120 N Morrison Street, Suite 101, in the heart of Appleton (on the first floor of the Willems Marketing building). For parking, there are free-after-6PM metered spaces near the coworking facility. There are also nearby parking ramps, which cost $2.

This civic hacker meetup is for interested people from throughout NE Wisconsin, not just those who live in Appleton or the Fox Valley. So if you’re in De Pere, Fond du Lac, Green Bay, Manitowoc, Oshkosh, Sheboygan, Sturgeon Bay, or one of the many other fine cities in our region, come join the fun! And if you want to host a civic hacking meetup in your hometown, let me know (bwaldron [at] gmail {dott} com). I’ll work with you to organize an event in your city.

We’ll likely have people working on the trash / recycling family of civic hacks, including one related to the Pebble Smartwatch, as well as whatever other hacks participants are most interested in.

Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow night at Appleton Coworking!
