We have identified several ideas that we think would be great candidates for a hackathon that we are planning for in early 2013. If you are unfamiliar with hackathons, they are an event where people who are involved with all aspects of software development gather and work together to create or improve a product. As ORCID is an open source project, we are very excited to have our users help with improving the registry through a hackathon.
By voting for this idea (and including your email address), you will be notified when we have more information about the date and topics for the hackathon. We're looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with!

Is it going to be in a physical place(s) or over the Internet?
