Something similar is going on here in Brazil.
An important national newspaper (O Estado de São Paulo) is sponsoring this
hackathon with hackers, journalists and designers. It's completely open to
the public. Probably it's the first time that an important newspaper is
trying something like that.
(sorry, portuguese only. it's a brief explanation of the event and the list
of participants until now. glad to see so many people interested!)
