Can hackathons help create smarter cities?
Startup Weekend

We did this last Nov in Bellevue - It rocked, and several products came out of it that do indeed make things a little smarter, in their respective niches
(+ it helped us test out and refine some skills and lit a fire under our behinds that probably has served to make us biz things more smartly ; - ))

We met several city planner types in the groups and acting as judges. A lot of ideas were exchanged and contacts made - and that all helps, too, used well.

It felt a bit like Odyssey of the Mind, but adult biz centric ; - )

From that experience and results I've seen/heard of from others, I definitely think Hackathons have a place in making cities, companies and individuals smarter.
