Books in Browsers (BiB) is an exploration of cutting edge digital productions, design, and interaction. It primarily targets software developers and user experience designers who are actively working or directly influential in web-based publishing. Providing an opportunity for cross-fertilization across domains, BiB catalyzes conceptions of publishing not otherwise imaginable.

The hackday is an opportunity to work together to build interoperable projects using openly available or donated code, content, and APIs.

This event is part of Image as Location, a Bay Area festival that explores the relationship between people, pictures, and places brought to you by Books in Browsers, the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, the Goethe-Institut San Francisco, Gray Area Art and Technology, swissnex San Francisco, and the Berkeley Center for New Media.
