Good For Nothing: hacking for good

Good For nothing (GFN) is a global community of techies, designers, thinkers, do-ers, makers, cooks and more, coming together to support epic projects of social good. I took part in some of the early GFN gigs and then worked with the mothership. In two day long gigs, we came up with and built apps to accelerate the analysis of data on cancer, prototyped the marketing of the wild network, and designed food growing co-ops. I got addicted to to these creative hackathon-raves for social innovation, so I joined the mothership. I worked on developing the backbone of this growing community of over 40 international chapters, and devising experiments in global distributed decision-making.
