Quoting BJ Weschke <bwesc...@btwtech.com>:
I realize it may not be logistically possible just yet, but you may
also want to throw some consideration for an additional hackfest
for those closer to the east coast. (Eg-NYC)
This is 2010, right? There's this thing called the Internet, right?
IRC still works, right? Why the Hell can't Twitter have hackathons
over the Internet, the same way all the open source projects do? For
cryin' out loud! Linux, PostgreSQL, Perl, Python, Ruby ... you name it
... *every* major open source hacker-built piece of software is put
together around the world over the Internet, with major contributors
in most nations. Why should annotations be developed and tested only
in San Francisco or New York?

Subject: [twitter-dev] Re: Annotations Hackfest
Great question. We're really excited to see what developers do with
annotations during the hackfest. In some ways the hackfest can be
thought of as an early test of annotations and will let us know what
we have left to do before we release them to the developer community.
The plan, if things go well at the hackfest, is to have a general
developer release this summer.
