Hack for Change Baltimore is the local version of the first ever National Day of Civic Hacking, which will take place June 1-2, 2013. Hackathon participants will use technology and entrepreneurial thinking to tackle some of our city's most pressing social challenges. The hackathon will unite government and citizens making information available and useable for good, as well as showcase the value of getting involved in civic hacking in our city.

Since this is a national event, we thought it would be awesome to partner with another US city. So Baltimore will co-hack with the city of Philadelphia for an Apps Exchange. We will build cross-city teams, that will allow one city to easily fork the other's civic applications. Baltimoreans can check out what Philly's built at http://appsforphilly.org. But we don't have to stop there...

Got other ideas about what to hack? We'd love to hear them. Or check out what other folks plan to work on.
