Hubway Data Visualization Challenge: Hack transportation Saturday at Bocoup Loft!

Bocoup Loft, the delightful web consultancy/hacker space, is hosting a Hubway data hackathon Saturday, helping participants dive into data detailing over half a million bike rides released by bike sharing service Hubway and the Metropolitan Area Planning Council. The hackathon is part of the Hubway Data Visualization Challenge.

The deadline for the contest is Oct. 31, and the race is still wide open.
