The Disrupt Hack Day ( http://disrupt.techcr... ) is an open Event from May 22-23 in New York City. It will be a marathon session of hacking for creatives to gather and build. The event is free and is being held over the weekend before the TechCrunch Disrupt conference.
The Hack Day will mix 200 hackers, coders, developers and hardware geeks, with a whole lot of Red Bull and pizza, then let it all ferment overnight. Projects will be shown on stage on Sunday, and a variety of awards will be given. If you finish and present a project you’ll get into the main Disrupt conference for free (saving you $3,000). All the top hackers and projects will be covered by TechCrunch and other attending media.
Participants can build whatever they’d like using publicly available APIs. A recent Hack Day hosted elsewhere turned out a toaster that printed news headlines on bread before turning it into breakfast. After a judging round on Sunday the judges’ favorite hacks will present alongside the top startups chosen during Disrupt in front of the entire Disrupt event audience of 2,000 people on Wednesday, May 26.
TechCrunch is a Technorati Top 5 blog that profiles startups, products and websites, it has over 4.5 million rss subscribers. TechCrunch Disrupt is a three-day conference and startup competition. Attendees will meet the people behind the new startups, new products and new technologies driving disruption today. Startups go head to head to show their stuff and impress the audience and a panel of experts over multiple rounds of competition. Everyone gets stage time, but only one startup will take home a $50,000 top prize.
