Can anyone provide/suggest a venue in New York to host a bunch of programmers working non-stop on open solutions for Japan and Haiti from Friday June 3rd to Sunday June 5th? Random Hacks of Kindness is a global event hosted simultaneously in cities throughout the world where software developers and stakeholders come together to "hack for humanity" and work on digital solutions for disaster and emergencies. All we need is a roof over our heads, power plugs, tables for the energy and soft drinks (no alcohol or smoking in the venue or while coding) and hopefully Internet access. I will provide funky energy drinks and organic snacks and will be present all 72 hours. I will also provide direct contact with the stakeholders in Japan and Port-au-Prince and their remote engagment in coding and validating the needs and work done. There are plenty of needs related to coding support systems for disaster recovery in Japan and Haiti. Any suggestions for a venue or contact who can facilitate one?
