Fresh Egg Hack Day 2011
The first public Hack Day took place between September 29-30th of 2006 at the Yahoo! campus in Sunnyvale, California and was followed by a performance by Beck. The Fresh Egg Hack Day will be on Thursday 2nd June 2011 in Worthing, West Sussex and is more likely to be followed by employees cracking open some bottles of Becks.
The Day is all about fun and collaborative sharing of ideas. Everyone taking part gets a day to down their usual tools and work together focusing on new ideas and innovation opportunities. We have 12 teams signed up and over half the company taking part – all competing for the prestigious accolade of winning the first Fresh Egg Hack Day.
I tried to squeeze some hints out of the office email list about what exciting ideas might come out of the closet tomorrow, but it already appears to be getting quite competitive. The resounding silence has been deafening, and several new military-strength firewalls have sprung up in case anyone was tempted to try the other kind of hack in their race to get ahead.
We’ll have to wait and see what world-changing, revolutionary hacks of utter awesome-ness are presented on Friday afternoon!
