First ever Lyme hackathon?

I received this today. It sounds promising, especially considering who is  involved. The VA administration, MIT, UC Berkeley and the White House. I gather this is another noble effort by the Bay Area Lyme Foundation near Stanford, California which has been generously pushing the Lyme agenda and funding research, especially at Stanford.

Here is the announcement:

"I would like to extend an invitation to participate in the first Lyme Hackathon organized by the Dean Center at Spaulding/Harvard Medical School in collaboration with VA, MIT, Berkeley and supported by the White House Office of Science and Technology - generously supported by the Bay Area Lyme Foundation.

Join us to make a difference in one of our series of hackathons on both coasts!

First Hackathon will be held jointly at MIT and Berkeley this upcoming Saturday April 16.

Please find more information and to register
Cash awards will be given to top three teams.

We hope to see you there!"
