Subject: Boston Cleanweb Hackathon + Data Jam Update (w/the White House and City of Boston!)
Hello Professor Sclaroff,
I hope you have been doing well! I’m following up with you about the 2nd Annual Boston Cleanweb Hackathon + Challenge Competition.
Some exciting advances have happened since we last had touch, including a partnership with the White House Office of Science and Technology and the City of Boston’s Greenovate Initiative, with whom we will be co-hosting an Energy Data Jam. This Energy Data Jam is part of the 90 day follow-on Challenge Competition to the Hackathon, where participants will have the opportunity to continue working on the applications they put together in the first weekend and hopefully create a real company to be presented at the Clean Tech Open Summer Academy Launch!
Our registration is also live at this point! You can register at cleanwebbos.eventbrite.com<http://cleanwebbos.eventbrite.com/>.
Accordingly with these changes, the blurb we use for newsletters and emails has updated. Here is the most recent blurb you can use:

The 2nd Boston Cleanweb Hackathon + Data Jam Challenge is a prize competition to demonstrate the impact of applying information technologies to energy challenges. Don't know what Cleanweb is? That's ok, check out this post about usin Boston Inno<http://bostinno.com/2013/03/08/cleanweb-an-opportunity-to-get-energy-entrepreneurs-thinking-bigger/#ss__306815_242885_0__ss>! More than 100 participants join in one of two tracks: 1) a traditional, 30-hour hack competition with over $10,000 in prizes! 2) A "Data Jam" challenge competition developed with support from the White House OSTP (check out their post too!<http://energy.gov/data/articles/energy-data-jam-goes-tour>) and the City of Boston. It's a 90-day sprint to build applications for transportation or building energy efficiency. Separate prizes and recognition at the June 26 Clean Tech Open Summer Academy Launch!
