Guess what, hacks and hackers! Some of the year’s biggest gatherings are coming up soon. The Buenos Aires group got together Friday to plan some last-minute details of Media Party later this month, which is probably the biggest Hacks/Hackers event in the world.

And next month, ONA is coming to New Orleans. If you have an idea for an ONA-related event, or are looking for a sponsor for your ONA event, please get in touch.
