(Add your own reason/expectation!) > To have a gathering of the peoples of the oceans where activists, technologists, poets can meet, make friends & make things. [name=chihao] > There has been some contacts between communities from the three countries since as early as 2014. But there has not been a lot of collaborations and common projects under this framework of exchange. A hackathon might be a good way to bootstrap some work that could be useful for our common regional problems, or to forge a stronger sense of network between us. [name=pm5] > To create momentum to organize the civic technology solidarity of Korea, Taiwan, and Japan (Hong Kong, Macao).
