Hello DCWEEK! Yes, it’s that time again – our parties, hackathon, keynotes, conference, and projects are ready to roll.

What is DCWEEK? It’s short for Digital Capital Week, which is a festival in the DC area focused on bringing together designers, developers, entrepreneurs and social innovators of all kinds from around the globe. This is the 3rd year of the festival, which is produced by Tech Cocktail and iStrategy Labs, and once again will be filled with a mix of organized events and community driven events. Watch the video at the end of this post to see some of the highlights from 2011.
