Hacks and Hackers - Thursday May 12th @ James St Pub

A hacks and hackers group recently formed in Ottawa and they are going to be
having a meeting at the James St pub on Thursday.

Here's a little snippet about what hacks and hackers is:

*snip*
The worlds of hackers and journalists are coming together as reporting goes
digital and Internet companies become media empires. Journalists call
themselves "hacks," someone who can churn out words in any situation.
Hackers use the digital equivalent of duct tape to whip out code.
Hacker-journalists try and bridge the two worlds. This group is to bring all
these people together -- those who are working to help people make sense of
their world. It's for hackers exploring technologies to filter and visualize
information, and for journalists who use technology to find and tell
stories. In the age of information overload, all their work has become even
more crucial. This group aims to help members find inspiration and think in
new directions, bringing together potential collaborators for projects and
new ventures. Please also check out our

If we're going to this location instead of the Code Factory we may wanna 
update the meetup group.

Nah, this is just another unrelated event that some people may be interested
in. Just figured I'd get the word out.

Actual meeting is still on the 18th.
