I like the marketing pitch! Perhaps also provide a link to the agenda item (http://wiki.esipfed.org/index.php/Discovery_Hack-a-thon ). 

Also I updated the Agenda Item to include a link to the  http://wiki.esipfed.org/index.php/Discovery_Hack-a-thon_Details page you set up; let me know if it should be taken out - to me it seemed a good way to connect folks to the additional resources ahead of time.

Sending this out again for comments, now that we are getting closer to the meeting.  Comments?

> Immerse yourself in the glamorous, creative world of hackers by participating in the Discovery Client Hack-a-thon! We'll be working with several different languages and approaches to create actual running federated search clients.
> Don't know how to code, in any language? No problemo! We'll have rich, GUI-based application frameworks you can work with, like ESRI's Geoportal. Hey, you can even write an ESIP Discovery client in HTML!
> Looking for something to tackle in Scala, Lua, Go or whatever your latest language crush is? Ditch that "Hello, World" example and come make something useful!
