Howdy Chi-town Mozillians!

I'm not sure the chicago at list works anymore (cause I sent 
something out the other day and got crickets), so I'm CC'ing a bunch of ya.

I'm reaching out to you to see if you might help me support a project 
submission at the CNT Urban Sustainability Apps Competition 
<> being lead by a Hive Chicago champ, Jackie 
Moore. Jackie and I both plan to be there all three days, but are still 
working to recruit developer and design support. *I was**hoping that you 
might help us to identify passionate and talented folks to help**us* 
build our concept 

We want to take a grass-roots approach to helping youth move around 
Chicago by building a mobile app that organizes point-to-point 
transportation solutions for peer groups using public transportation, 
ride shares or other solutions. The current MVP concept would pull 
existing open data from CTA and build in a capacity to connect with 
published learning event information via platforms like the Chicago City 
of Learning <>. You can learn more about 
our concept here 

This work has been explicitly endorsed by Vaughn Bryant 
Chief Programs officer at the Chicago Parks Department. He has pledged 
to work with us to use a developing sports program partnership between 
CPD and CPS as a committed test-case for a functioning prototype. We 
also have the support of Sharon Feigon 
<>, Executive Director of 
the Shared Use Mobility Center. So I'm confident that it's viable.

*If someone you know might be interested in joining us, please have them 
do one, or all of the following:*

  * Join us at Chi Hack Night <>, tomorrow, June
    2, 6-9pm to continue developing the MVP concept in prep for this
  * Register for the CNT Apps Challenge <> (see
    schedule attached) and make sure to *join "Idea Leader" Jackie Moore;*
  * Shoot us an email to let us know they are on board or interested!
