The weekend of June 4-5, 2011 Gogle will hold the next round of 18 Random Hacks of Kindness global events at five US and 13 international sites, giving the community opportunities to collaborate in person, sprint on projects, and engage in new work together.

“We’re looking to non-profit organizations and experts in the fields of Disaster Risk Management and Climate change to submit problem definitions online, letting hackers and volunteers know exactly what problems need to be solved, and the context the technology must work in.

You can also attend events to meet with developers in person and get them excited about specific projects,” Google stated.

“For the last two years Google has partnered with Microsoft, Yahoo!, HP, NASA and the World Bank on Random Hacks of Kindness (RHoK), bringing together subject matter experts and volunteer software developers and designers to create open source software solutions that address challenges facing humanity.”
