Agency stages 'hack-a-thons' in bid to make energy data cool

A group of mostly under-35 guys and women gathered one Friday evening at 1776, a technology startup space in Washington, D.C. Huddled amid towers of pizza boxes and tubs of soda and energy drinks, a brown-haired woman in a T-shirt proclaiming "I'm not lazy, I am energy efficient" chatted with a long-haired man in a green hoodie and Google Glass. An over-40 man in a rumpled button-down shirt and tie intently listened to a guy wearing a backpack with both shoulder straps engaged. Welcome to the Department of Energy's first public "hack-a-thon."
