These pics are being posted during the ongoing National Day of Civic Hacking hackathon at The Generator in Burlington as dozens of volunteer 'civic hackers' build community projects. Gregg Banse and Bob Colquhoun (in the photo below) dedicated their efforts to importing our Vermont music industry data into the new business directory section of the Big Heavy World web site, moving it even closer to conclusion after a year of heavy lifting.
The NDoCH hackathon in Burlington was one of many encouraged by Hack for Change, all across the country.
