You are invited to participate in a 3-day hackathon from Friday, December 9, 2011 through Sunday, December 11, 2011 that is open for the general public. We are not only calling upon the experts, but upon everyone to join this collective act of re-imagining our relationship with Twitter data and the Occupy movement. How can we apply the mechanics of the occupy movement to the data of Twitter itself? Some of us are interested in "occupying the data" itself -- get critical with it. OccupyData is meant to serve as an intervention by offering experts and activists means to work together and think critically about the movement, its messages, and goals and the role new media, and specifically, Twitter might play in this system. Register and receive open access to export four CSV files for each hashtag of real-time data on -- (1) stats by day, (2) stats by hour (3) stats by minute and the (4) raw data itself -- and lots of support to think through it.
A team from New Media & Digital Culture, Utrecht University is also participating in collaboration with MIT Medialab. You can find us at Setup, Neude 5, Utrecht. You are invited to join!
