Matt Ewing , founder of green tech companyRewire Labs , decided on Tuesday the Occupy Wall Street movement needed a technology boost. So he held a San Francisco Hackathon Friday night, aptly named “Occupy the Web, hacking for the 99 percent.”
Occupy movements targeting corporate corruption have spread outside of the its Occupy Wall Street origins. Indeed, the day of Ewing’s hackathon over 4,000 people marched in San Francisco under the same Occupy flag. Many have accused the protesters of having no core vales, no unity, but the developers that gathered Friday night disagreed.
