Science hack date, science hack place

Attention London: Science Hack Day is a go; I repeat: Science Hack Day is a go.

The inaugural Science Hack Day will take place at The Guardian’s London office on June 19th and 20th, 2010.

Sound good? If you can make the date, add your name to the list of who’s coming.

My next step will be drumming up sponsorship, but I’ve already had some encouraging feedback from some very cool science-related institutions. If you have connections with any organisations that might be interested in sponsoring this event, get in touch.

In the meantime, if you can think of any nifty science hacks, please share your ideas—and if you know of any useful APIs or datasets, please add those too.

Watch this space—and the wiki—for more updates as they happen. Let’s make this awesome.
