Programmable Web has a post about Sabre hosting a virtual hackathon.  Sign up and maybe we could form a Eugene Team?  Cash Prizes.


Sabre Corporation is hosting a hackathon to challenge developers to create apps that could revolutionize the travel industry. The hackathon, to be held on Aug. 1-2, is a 24-hour, non-stop challenge for developers to use Sabre’s new APIs along with other open technology providers in order to create a working application prototype.
Built on a patent-pending shopping platform, Sabre’s new mobile friendly, sub-second response time shopping and intelligence APIs enable developers to build new capabilities for the travel industry. First prize winner will receive $15,000 in cash and credits for use of Sabre APIs. Developers can register at the Sabre Dev Studio site.

Updated Calendar!  After a year of using the previous calendar aggregation and entry I’ve updated to using a Google Calendar for displaying the aggregated calendar and Calendly for making new entries.  I think you’ll find the experience much improved. View Larger

The Best Mason Jar Koozie Ever

A Eugene startup, Mason-ry has produced the first custom designed Silicone Mason Jar Koozie. Their work can be seen at Mason-ry.co. Their goal is to encourage folks to use durable and multipurpose mason jars instead of disposable cups or single purpose coffee or beer mugs. They decided not to use animal or petroleum products for their koozie, but rather great feeling and durable Silicone, which is made from abundant elements. 
 
They are now using Kickstarter to secure funding for their first round of koozie production. You can see the campaign at kickstarter. They need your support to turn their prototypes in to a product.
