Fwd: mySociety weekly civic tech hack nights

I mentioned MySociety's hack nights on the list before, but just to let you
know that the evenings are going strong, and it would be great to see more
mongers attend and show what you can do with Perl for civic hacking.

There's no single project or language focus, it's all about getting
interested hackers to meet and discuss and work on things that interest
them, and see what happens!

Some of the projects so far do interact with MySociety's tools -- scraping
Leveson to import it into SayIt, or working on a front-end to contextualise
campaigns for WriteToThem.  But others are completely standalone, like
community-building in post-conflict societies and mountain rescue in Wales.

More details below!
