This time, there will be two consecutive Hackathons with two weeks in between, and the judging will only take place after the second event. The products are expected to be top quality, well designed and thought out. Good luck hackers!

Is the hack more than just another generic social app? Does it do something entirely novel, or at least take a fresh approach to an old problem?
Is the hack practical given its target audience? Is it something that the user base would actually use? Does it fulfill a need people have?
Is the hack technically interesting or difficult? Is it just some lipstick on an API, or were there real technical challenges to surmount?
Is the hack usable in its current state? Is the user experience smooth? Does everything appear to work? Is it well-designed?
