August's RTP 180 Topic | Hacking

The term hacking often gets a bad rap. People tend to think of stealing private information or breaking into a system to produce a negative effect. But what about those who hack systems, devices, and processes to improve functionality or effectivness? That's the type of hacking we're interested in! Join us on August 17 as we dive into civic hacking, innovation hacking within corporations, and much more.
