--->Thank you to the attendees of the AT&T Hackathon <---
Thanks to the SFTech4Good members who came out to the AT&T Mobile App Hackathon - Autism Speaks (San Francisco) last weekend! It was great to see you support a great cause by working on projects to help the lives of those with autism a bit better. We hope you'll join us at any future hackathons or Tuesday meetups!
---> Thank you to everyone who took part in Tuesday's TweetChat! <---
We had a great discussion with Jay Golden from Walkingstar Story Consulting about how orgs and causes can best tell their origin stories and why an origin story is important. The folks at TechSoup are working on a recap of our Twitter chat as well as the others from Tuesday. I’ll make sure to post a link in the reply section of the event page as soon as it’s ready.

---> Code for America now recruiting civic startups for 2013 Accelerator <---
Through a competitive, four-month program, the CfA Accelerator “turbo-charges” select civic startups by providing them a springboard to amplify market awareness of their product, funding, business mentoring specific to the Gov 2.0 space, and introductions to a broad network of civic leaders and potential investors.
Every month, accepted teams will attend week-long “retreats” in SF packed with trainings, talks, and networking events; full time relocation is not required.
The program will start in August 2013; the deadline for application is May 31, 2013.
