[UA-discuss] Hackathon @ ICANN55

I’m skeptical of the success of a hackathon in Marrakesh, or indeed at an
ICANN meeting. It needs developers, not policy people to make it successful.

The probability of success will increase if co-located with a more
developer friendly meeting, or in a University setting.

ICANN, through Cyrus Namazi, has raised the idea of supporting a
“Hackathon” in conjunction with ICANN55 in Morocco.

A “Hackathon” is where a bunch of geeks gather for a short period of time –
one or two days – and code to solve problems.

At the UA Discuss call yesterday there was strong interest in supporting
such an event, but we ran out of time to reach any meaningful conclusion.

So, this thread is to instigate discussion, ideas, and volunteers to help
drive it forward.

Your thoughts, please….
