Just realized there was a typo in the body of the email about GLAM Hack
The correct date for GLAM Hack Philly is Feb 1-2, 2014, as was indicated in
the email subject, not 2012 as was written in the body.
Sorry for the confusion. Hopefully, not requiring the ability to
time-travel will make the hackathon much more accessible. :)
