LIFE HACKS & GADGETS
Dobb’s had to say about the MacHack. Would you forgo sleep for three days for a chance to own the coveted Victor rAt-Trap? Many tried. Few prevailed. A good time for all! Since the very first contest, participants have thrown themselves into the fray with abandon.
We often hear things like, “I’ve never worked so hard to achieve so little, and I’ve never had a better time! Anything created in the previous year was eligible. Anything created during MacHack was even better. Team efforts were encouraged. When asked, “What do we get if we win? Were we telling the truth? You be the judge. Here are some of the winners, and their stories: He had read about the contest and decided that winning it was what he had to do to get known.
Allan’s win led to him working closely with a number of groups at Apple, as well as with companies like Symantec, Metrowerks, Software Ventures, and others. Allan is now the President of Guru, Inc. Not long after that, he joined The Blue Meanies, a much-reviled or was that ‘revered’? Dean has gone on to greatness at General Magic and subsequent ventures. Mike Neil, Winner Mike cleaned up, garnering more votes than any previous winner. Without requiring any preinstalled software on the unsuspecting target machine, Quinn lit up the crowd by plugging in a FireWire cable and starting an animated fire on the screen.
Here’s an observation from an Apple bigshot: I imagine you think it is only a lark, but I believe that it gives focus and a sense of cameradrie to the sessions that simply wouldn’t be achieved with dry talks and panels. The electricity in the machine rooms between all those developers, busily writing away, arguing with Allan Foster as they take a break, or kibitzing with each other as they look each other’s work over is absolutely precious.
I believe these people reconfirm themselves as a community during those times. They will support each other’s efforts, and the Mac as a product, after these all night sessions. The contest provides a funny sort of glue that strikes exactly the correct note. Thanks very much. Some people love rules, and just can’t live without ’em. OK, here’s some rules then. Scott and Greg make all the rules.
Any entry must have been written some time during the last year. It’s ok to enter a revised version of something shown in a previous year. Supplying source code will get you more votes. All hacks shown will be included on the conference CD unless you can give us a really good reason to exclude it. Participating is more fun than sitting in the viewing audience. Working in a team is often more fun, and can result in some long-lasting friendships and working relationships. How else do you figure you can join the SmartFriends tm network?
As you may have noticed, we don’t have many rules. Go forth and hack! All rights reserved.
