Interested in going to this? I'll be there for at least part of that

My name is Dora and I work for an education technology company called
Boundless in Boston. I am reaching out to you regarding a textbook
hackathon Boundless is hosting in a few weeks.
We're pulling together a group of Boston area physics teachers, grad
students, researchers, and undergrads with TA experience to join us at
Boundless for a hackathon weekend. Essentially, it's a way to meet and
mingle with fellow physicists enthusiasts while creating a free, open
physics textbook for students and teachers to use soon. To create the
textbook the group will be pulling from free, openly-licensed educational
sources online (we'll explain the whole process during a fun orientation
night). Here's some more info about the hackathon:
I would love if you could share the event with your physics contacts!
A little background on Boundless <http://www.boundless.com>: The company
is based in Boston and has raised almost $10M in venture capital to date.
We're is aiming to make education more affordable and accessible for
students by curating the best open educational resources. We currently have
free, open textbook alternatives for eight subjects, and physics is one
we're planning to share with the community soon!
