I wanted to update you on progress for the Data Privacy Legal Hackathons in SF...

LOCATION: The Bay Area event will happen in San Francisco at Mozilla space at the CR of Harrison and Embarcadero, at their street level location.

PRIZES for the SF contest:  $1k, $500 and $250  There are more prizes for the other locations.

HACK TOPICS:  Do Not Track, Surveillance & Anti-Surveillance, Transparency, Open Notice & Consent, Personal Data Controls, etc.

IF you want to participate, or know of a team or two that would like to participate in this, that would  be fantastic.

We are in need of ***engineers, ***usability and product folks, and ***legal scholars interested in ***privacy and personal data issues***.

The aim of this announcement is to fire up a call to action to legally hack data privacy. We all know it's past time to collaborate and start doing something about the state of privacy and personal data, including the notice and consent work we propose. 

As apart of this project, Open Notice is sponsoring a pre-hackathon project to create a Legal Map for hackers to use at the event.   We are also working to propose a project based on a use case called the Consent Receipt Scenario to enable ‘customisers' to control personal information. 

We are also building what we call the Consent Receipt & Map infrastructure as the basis for the Open Notice and Consent Receipt project. The link above will take you to the current state of that work.

Thank you!
Mary Hodder


 Data Privacy Legal Hack-A-thon

This is an unprecedented year documenting our loss of Privacy. Never before have we needed to stand up and team up to do something about it.   

In honour of Privacy Day, the Legal Hackers are leading the charge to do something about it, inspiring a two-day international Data Privacy Legal Hackathon. 

This is no ordinary event. Instead of talking about creating privacy tools in theory, the Data Privacy Legal Hackathon is about action! A call to action for tech & legal innovators who want to make a difference!

Across three locations on February 8th & 9th, 2014
* New York City * London, UK * San Francisco *


This two-day event aims to mix the tech and legal scenes with people and companies that want to champion personal data privacy.   Connecting entrepreneurs, developers, product makers, legal scholars, lawyers, and investors.

Each location will host a two-day “judged” hacking competition with a prize awarding finale, followed by an after-party to celebrate the event. 

The Main Themes to The Hackathon Are:
Crossing the Pond Hack
Do Not Track Hacks
Transparency Hacks
Surveillance & Anti-Surveillance
Privacy Policy Hacks
Revenge Porn Hacks

1st:  $1,000
2nd: $ 500
