Open Science Course Sprint: An Education Hackathon for Open Data Day
Billy Meinke, Creative Commons, February 12, 2013

This sounds like fun: "the Science Program at Creative Commons is teaming up with the Open Knowledge Foundation and members of the Open Science Community to facilitate the building of an open online course, an Introduction to Open Science. The actual build will take place during a hackathon-style “sprint” event on Open Data Day on Saturday, February 23rd and will serve as a launch course for the School of Open during Open Education Week (Mar 11-15)." It's not a good day for me, unfortunately, to if they go into the California evening I may be able to drop in by Hangout.
