    Welcome to the Aaron Swartz 2017 Hackathon!

    I'm noticing only a handful of people here, and I wonder if it might be related to the Github authentication process. When I elected the option to log in with my GitHub account, the green ("Authorize"?, "Join"?) button was disabled. I'm not sure why/how I got it enabled, but it was some random clicking around the authentication panel that did it. For some reason, my GitHub organizations were part of the authentication process, which might have been part of the reason.
    I'm not particularly experienced at using GitHub yet, though, so I'm sure my difficulty in joining might just be related to my relative unfamiliarity.

    @Pseudothink you're right! I imagine Sunday will be the big hackathon day, so today I'm hoping we'll start building momentum on the chat :)

    I had an issue with granting access to one of the organizations on my github. I had to manually accept reporting it to gitter -> it propted for a password and I just clicked away from it and then the authorize button was enabled. I think it's a github feature to limit visibility of group affiliation.

    @ultimape
    oh huh
    sound is really off - lots of echo and it seems to repeat bits
    still workable

    @mekarpeles
    Sorry! Thanks for the feedback
    We'll try to do better w/ audio next time around!!

    @ultimape
    Might be the network connection on the streaming machine - I forget what zoom uses behind the scenes, but artifacts sounded like what happens when repeated packets are sent using udp-based streaming services.

    Now there is a youtube live stream for today with a speaker: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XDtbqT0dBEo

    @ultimape
    Should I be watching the YT stream or the zoom if I wanted to listen to that thing about blockchain namespaces?

    @ursafoot
    That talk is scheduled to start in a little more than an hour (+?). It should be on the YT live stream then.
