National Day of Civic Hacking

This June, thousands of people around the United States will join together for the first ever National Day of Civic Hacking. The national event will take place June 1-2, 2013, in ~80 cities across the nation. The initiative is a united effort to connect citizens and government in a partnership focused on improving people's daily lives through technology. This event will bring together techies, entrepreneurs, do-gooders, activists and others like you from across the nation to collaboratively create, build, and invent tools using publicly-released data. We hope to create solutions that are directly relevant to our neighborhoods, our cities, our states and our country.

Adapting Websites To New Formats

Experiencing An Event Apart, open.NASA

"The overwhelming message throughout the entire event was that the long-predicted shift in the ways people access the web has happened. Smartphone and tablet usage has skyrocketed over the past few years and users are accessing online resources more and more while they are on the move. However, a website tailored to consumption on a desktop of laptop doesn't necessarily translate well to an iPhone. While I'm proud to say that the entire family of openNASA websites are accessible from pretty much any modern (or, as we learned, legacy) platforms out there, they aren't really optimized to any specific mobile usage. Moving forward, I'd like to start implementing more elements of responsive design into our projects, tailoring the content we present depending on things like browser width."
