DLL Storify of Silicon Harlem's Harlem Week Hackathon ... Saturday 8/8/15

Last update: Sunday 8/16/15
Silicon Harlem sponsored this hackathon as part of this year's Harlem Week. As explained in the summary article by Opportunity Lives (posted after the hackathon):
"The all-day hackathon, which organizers promoted with hashtags like 4Harlem, HackHarlem, and UptownTechie, was aimed mainly at young people between the ages of 13 and 24. About 50 participants competed in teams for the best technology-oriented business plan based on the question, 'How can technology be used to improve your life and your community?' 
Below find the DLL Storify of tweets that were generated by participants who used hashtags =  #4Harlem, #HackHarlem, #UptownTechieAs usual, this DLL Storify is merely a "firehose" draft, i.e., it includes all tweets in chronological order without comment or classification ... Storyfies of other #DiversityInTech events are listed in the DLL Archives.
