Hacking For A Cause In Eugene

Eugene's nickname is "Track Town USA" for its track and field renown.  But it's being twisted into "Hack Town" for "Hack For a Cause," starting tomorrow (Feb. 12) and running for 48 hours. 

Teams get the two days to come up with workable ideas for improving livability in downtown Eugene; some technological, some physical, some social. 

Teams are urged to think far, far outside the box in creating their ideas. 

Matt Sayre from the Technology Association of Oregon and Joshua Purvis, TAO's events coordinator, visit with details.
