The Music Data Hackathon this Saturday 7/21 is seeking a physical venue (either southbay, SF, peninsula...).
Competition times are Sat 5am PST - Sun 5am PST, but the dataset is released Friday so you can get started.
Contact Margit Zwemer if your employer/hackerspace/org/whatever can host.
(Any HackerDojo members who can host?)
(I called Mtn View library but they no longer have a public room, but anyway we wouldn't want some place that
kicks us out at 6pm).


        Kaggle Update: Hackathon this Saturday

    Finding the Music in Data and the Data in Music


	Music Data Hackathon this Saturday


	For those who like their competitions short and sweet, we’re hosting another 24-hour hackathon THIS SATURDAY. The Music Data Hackathon is being organized by Data Science London on a subset of the EMI Million Interview Dataset.
 This is a rich, newly released collection of market research on the 
tastes and listening habits of music fans all over the world (and it 
gave us an excuse to put a pretty girl on the front page, which 
Marketing assures me will drive participation) .  The Data will be made 
available 24 hours prior to the start of the comp (Friday, 1pm London 
time; Submissions open Saturday 1pm London time). There is also a 
Visualization Track, hosted on the Kaggle Prospect interface, for the 
data artists among you.
