All over Australia, hundreds of hackers have joined together to form teams and work to create the best new mashups, data visualisations and apps with Gov data.
Congratulations to everyone who got involved! Hackers, data providers, sponsors, mentors and organisers.
Recording from the GovHack Closing Ceremony – Sunday 2nd June.
After GovHack, everyone else was been left 23 years behind.
900 hackers x 48hrs hacking = 43,200hrs.
That’s 5,400 eight hour days, or 1,080 weeks.
There are 47 working weeks in a year.

Capturing the conversation
This event is all about sharing and networking so expect to be photographed, recorded, and videoed. If you don’t wish to have your photo taken or be recorded – let the person holding the camera or one of the events volunteers know.
The conversation will also be happening online so remember to share your thoughts and experience via a blog post, Twitter (#govhack), Flickr (tagged govhack), IRC (#govhack on freenode), share resources on the govcampau wiki – whatever channel you choose!
GovHack 2012 was run by volunteers from the Gov 2.0 Community, Rewired State and the eGovernment Technology Cluster. See the report including all the winners at http://www.govcampau.org/report/
GovHack was originally an Australian initiative by Web Directions. They ran the first GovHack which was funded by the Gov 2.0 Taskforce in 2009 as part of their MashUp Australia initiative.
