It's nice to receive praise :) From Jason Livingood on Twitter “SUPER COOL to see this come out of the RIPE Atlas Hackathon! This is the world's largest open Internet measurement platform with controlled endpoints (probes) in homes globally. They can't do speed tests but they can track stuff like LATENCY.

• On WFH Hackathons by Vesna Manojlovic

One more update: "In Germany, 42,000 programmers and software designers gathered online for a mass hackathon. #Wirvsvirus (we against the virus) came up with possible solutions to problems including virus tracking, improving inter-hospital communication, distributing food to the homeless, and helping farmers find people to bring in the harvest, and ended with a mass party on YouTube and Slack. A jury will decide which projects will be supported, with government funding guaranteed for the best. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/mar/28/lockdown-living-europe-activities-coronavirus-isolation "
