I think lightning talks on open science, open access, open data, open
gov, etc. would be good. I don't feel well prepared to give one.

At pycon I'll be helping with the openscienceframework.org sprint.
Maybe after that I could give a lightning talk on it.

Due to bad weather we didn't start at 5 and ended up getting started
around 7. We ended up talking about things and didn't get any hacking
done. so, I think 1 to 2 hours is too short for a hack night. Perhaps
a lightning talk on scraping tools, since scraping is one way that
people can extract information from sites without decent apis to
provide machine readable information, for examples, the inmate tracker
project, zotero translators, etc.
