Open Chattanooga is an advocacy group dedicated to making Chattanooga’s public data accessible from the internet. According to the group’s Facebook page, “Open Chattanooga uses technology as a platform to encourage government transparency, accountability, and accessibility.” Tomorrow, Open Chattanooga will have their first Hack-a-Thon. Don’t be alarmed by the name. The Hack-a-Thon is entirely legal. The purpose of the event is to address some of Chattanooga’s problems with public transportation. Garrett Crowe has more on the story.
