Aaron Swartz, a visionary, a hacktivist and a hero for his work authoring technologies that form the backbone of the web, passed away recently. Aaron defied the powers that be, and fought for the free dissemination of information. Even though he is gone, his work will not be forgotten.

Come celebrate the life and continue the work of Aaron Swartz at the first global hackathon in Aaron's memory. Our challenge is to look for ways to continue Aaron's work through creative projects that can bring us closer to his vision of an open and free world.
