Judging Criteria

  • Originality
    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?
  • Usefulness
    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?
  • Technical Difficulty
    Is the hack technically interesting or difficult? Is it just some lipstick on an API, or were there real technical challenges to surmount?
  • Design
    Is the hack usable in its current state? Is the user experience smooth? Does everything appear to work? Is it well-designed?
