Over the past four years, MuckRock’s amazing users have helped make public a lot of government documents, everything from NSA contracts to rejected license plates. On June 7 and 8, we’re opening that data even more, with a first crack at our new API and a journalism hackathon hosted at the MIT Media Lab. Join us!

The event is free but tickets are going fast. If you want early dibs on our data, or aren’t in the area, you can also check out our API here, with some sample implementations on Github.
