This seems pretty cool.
It’s a nice idea, promotes good things both about the web and about society. I wonder if there’s enough people in Vancouver that such an event could be held?
If you were a lower mainland/Vancouver (perhaps Victoria too?) web developer, would you be interested in a one-day code fest to build an accessible site for a worth non-profit? If you were a worthy non-profit, would be willing to get a free website, over which you had virtually no control, that was built in a day?
I would be. I’ve no idea how one organizes (or perhaps more to the point, find someone to organize) such an event, but maybe, when things slow down, I’ll try and organize something like this for next year (they seem to be held in the fall – a year should be enough to organize such a thing, no?).
