On June 1, a consortium of do-gooder digerati are coming together to commit Random Hacks of Kindness: A weekend of small, focused programming projects designed to improve Boston, connect citizens, and help the world.

“Are you a hacker? A changemaker? A concerned citizen? Do you want to make Boston better?” the event’s registration page asks. “We need your skillz, vision, experience, and imagination as we hack Boston!”

Organized by Code for Boston, CrisisCamp Boston, Open Government Boston, Geeks without Bounds, and Random Hacks of Kindness, the event is part of the larger, loosely federated National Day of Civic Hacking.
