The event will begin with lightning talks to inspire ideas for the hackathon, and hacking will continue for a day. At the end of the hackathon teams will present their projects.
The hackathon will emphasis opportunities around mobile - including how we can build tools to improve content creation, dissemination, and consumption on mobile. This includes apps and also the mobile web.
