Hi All,



I'm also attending hack the space and I know the team, and a couple of the judges, so I can ask about the judging criteria - a *really* interesting point. I will report back any findings too.



They are judging hacks in two strands - 1) Alpha hacks are those that are conceived and built at the event, and 2) Beta hacks that have had prep work going into them. I like this idea as the trend for hack events now seems to be that people put a lot of pre-work into the ideas and so have an unfair head start on those that turn up and work spontaneously.



@elvia:  The hack was open to the public to apply, and if you want to visit it whilst it's in progress you can view the hunching hackers from the Turbine Hall viewing platform - plus there will be an info desk. There was no fee to sign-up so it couldn't sell out as such, I just think they were pretty inundated with people who wanted to take part so spaces got taken up quite fast. 



The organisers - 3 beards - organised the art hack at the Whitechapel which seemed successful I think because they ensured that the mix of techies, artists, other creatives was well balanced.



See you there Victoria!



Best,

Julie
