About

Knowbility is a nonprofit organization in Austin, Texas. Since 1998, they have hosted a hackathon called AIR - accessibility internet rally. A few hundred nonprofits have benefited from this hackathon, but our lists of all participants since 1998 is incomplete. We need a volunteer or two to go into archived versions of our web site at archive.org and help us make as comprehensive of a list as possible of the nonprofits that have benefited from this event. We also would like a list of companies that have sponsored the event each year. A volunteer that signs up to help us would need to be a terrific and diligent online researchers, someone who doesn't easily give up when looking for information online. The data will be put into a Google spreadsheet. If we get more than one volunteer to take this on, then we will divide up the responsibilities - one will work on putting together the sponsor list, one may look for nonprofit clients from the first 10 years, etc. Our goal is to not only to be able to better show the impact we have with this event, but also to possibly, later this year, contact the nonprofits to see if and how they were impacted by their participation in this event. It could also help us in marketing and strategy development in the future.
