|It was nearing the end of the "Reinvent NYC.gov" hackathon, an event sponsored by the city in which web developers and designers from all over the country and even Canada came to re-imagine parts or the whole of the city's website.|
I find it rather awesome that they are going to use the designs of normal people instead of paying a company to do it for them. I was also expecting some actual hacking, this was instead just a event of people making designs and whatnot in a few days.
What disappointed me is that it was not a actual hackathon, and they might not use the designs in the first place. Also, if they do use the designs, they will use them in a few months at earliest.
