  • Not Just Any Old Hack

    Hacking isn’t exactly a word with a positive connotation, but at Goucher College, it does positive things. In the event “Coding for Community: A Civic Hackathon,” Friday, April 11, to Sunday, April 13, participants were encouraged to build apps, or other platforms, that created opportunities for neighborhoods to survive and thrive. Four ideas came out of it, from matching vacant lots and buildings with those who can use them, to aiding firefighters with floor plans and giving the National Park Service an idea of who is visiting. “The event is kind of a flash in the pan, but it’s really opportunity to get lift-off that would otherwise not get going.” Michael E. Scott-Nelson, Goucher’s Master of Arts in Digital Arts program director and hackathon participant. For more information, click here.
