Code4Change: Build Night tribute to Aaron Swartz

This week, join us for a solemn, special tribute to Aaron Swartz, entitled Code4Change.

Description

We're joining the global hackerspace community with this memorial hackathon and build night, in memory of Aaron Swartz.

Aaron was a talented young man who wielded his programming and writing skills as an internet activist. Demand Progress, the online group he founded, is known for its campaign against the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), which shook us all not so long ago. His influence on internet freedom did not stop after his untimely death earlier this month– he leaves behind, as his legacy, a call to action.

In order to answer Swartz's call for social change, Lamba Labs would like to humbly host a build night focused on projects that are geared towards social change in Lebanon, such as:

  • creating a website for the country's Anti-Racism project
  • visualizing election data to prevent corruption
  • creating a low-power device for emergency broadcasting of location
  • creating artwork for public street installations to nurture public awareness…

Everyone's welcome to join and collaborate on existing projects or work on their own projects.
