7:20  OpenHatch.org: An Open-Source Involvement Engine
        presented by Parker Phinney

      Parker Phinney (Dartmouth '12) has just returned to campus after
      spending the Winter working for the Philadelphia-based startup
      company OpenHatch.org. OpenHatch is an "open source involvement
      engine"--a community website that aims to make open source
      software development more approachable, friendly, and fun!
      Parker will talk about some specific areas where participating
      in open source seems less fun or less exciting, and the things
      that OpenHatch is doing to remedy them. He wants to hear YOUR
      feedback about what you think that open source is missing and
      what sorts of features you would like to see from a site like
      OpenHatch.org. Also, time permitting, Parker may talk about Pair
      Programming and the other Extreme Programming techniques that he
      learned about while working at OpenHatch.

8:50  New York Minute

      By popular request: bring your ideas, questions, advertisements,
      job offers/searches, etc., we'll go 'round the horn and make
      introductions and announcements.

       refreshment sponsor a count.
