HackFSM

In April 2014, The Bancroft Library and the UC Berkeley Digital Humanities Working Group organized #HackFSM, a digital humanities hackathon using the data of the Free Speech Movement digital collections at Berkeley. In preparation for the fiftieth anniversary of the FSM at Berkeley coming up in fall 2014, the event was an opportunity to engage the UC Berkeley community around the materials and history of the movement and align that conversation with the movement's legacy of open discourse and access to information in new ways for the digital age.

The UCB student teams were tasked with creating a compelling web-based user interface for a selection of materials from the FSM digital archive, one of Bancroft's early digital initiatives. The teams were provided access to the collections data through an Apache Solr-indexed API which was put together by the UC Berkeley Library Systems Office.

The event kicked off on April 1, 2014 when hackathon teams gathered or were formed and received API keys to the data. The closing event on April 12, 2014 offered each team time to present their project and then judges deliberated and announced the winners. The first place prize was awarded to the team of Alice Liu, Craig Hiller, Kevin Casey, and Cassie Xiong, and second went to Olivia Benowitz, Nicholas Chang, Jason Khoe, and Edwin Lao.
