After Hack The Press, where data journalism was in the spotlight, Hack The Elections this time offers a real hackathon dedicated to political and citizen applications.
Organized from March 17 to 18 by Voxe.org, the event invites developers and designers to create applications to better understand the challenges of the presidential elections, such as the programs and the proposals of the candidates.
On this occasion, the team of Silicon Radio will hurry on site and propose a radio debate. Dubbed “Aux Apps Citoyens”, the program will begin on Sunday March 18 at 3 pm. Based on the observation that, 2012 will undoubtedly be the year of political applications, the objective of this debate will be to come back to the real added value that the numerous fact-checking or online debate applications recently developed at the approaching presidential elections. Participants, application editors and journalists will be invited to take the microphone.
Gamification of the political debate and fact checking will be the main themes. Among the guests who will host these round tables, we will find in particular: Sylvain Lapoix (Le Veritomètre / Owni), Benjamin Ooghe-Tabanou (Regards Citoyens), Martin Untersinger (Rue89) or even Armel Le Coz (Open Democracy), to name a few.
Partner of the event, FrenchWeb invites you to follow the debates live. See you on our site next Sunday, from 3 p.m.
