MIT Builds An Open-Source Platform For Your Body | Fast Company
MIT Media Lab’s 11-day health care hackathon pulled students and big companies together with a common goal: Healing a broken industry.
Siberian temperatures. Eleven grueling days, navigating rough terrain. Six teams, matched for talent, competing for glory at the end. The Iditarod? Nah, just the annual MIT Health and Wellness Hackathon.
This isn’t your average social app-fest. The goal is to jump-start an open source platform where apps that track all different aspects of your bodily health can exchange information. It’s a Sisyphean task, since most digital health solutions today are trapped in silos, but the organizers believe they can change that by enfranchising big companies instead of trying to disrupt them.

Pachube International Internet of Things Hackathon - April 8-9, 2011 | pachube.community
The First Pachube International Internet of Things Hackathon is a global 24-hour event that starts on April 8, 2011 at 2pm (UK time) and ends on April 9, 2011 at 2pm (UK time).
Calling all developers, designers, makers, mixers, mashers, tinkerers, philosopher-mechanics and sales engineers! Join us in helping to define and build the Internet of Things on Global  Internet of Things Day! Use Pachube if you want, or build on other APIs  - make something physical, or virtual; hardware or software; conceptual  or practical - the point is for us to spend 24 hours connecting up our  things to the web, our environments to our things, and our things to US!  Starts on April 8, 2011 at 2pm UK time (which is 10pm in Tokyo, 11pm in Sydney, 6am in San Francisco) and goes on for 24 hours until 2pm (UK time) on April 9, 2011.
We will continue to update this page with details.
We will be hosting a hackathon here in London (address to be confirmed) but we also expect Pachube's  global community to host sister events around the world. The idea is  for us all, in countries throughout the world, to spend 24 hours on Global Internet of Things day building new devices, applications, and tools, and experimenting with bleeding-edge (beta) Pachube features,  connecting to each others’ devices and environments in realtime across  the planet, and building up a repertoire of innovative applications and  services for the Internet of Things that make the vision of a connected  planet a reality!
Please either join us in London or host your own local event!
