Antoine Laurent of the Global Editors Network outlines what he’s learned from hosting journalism hackdays, a genre on the rise. As he points out, the sort of things that work well with non-journalism hackdays might not be optimal for when hacks meet hackers over pizza:

The demo/pitch time is the best of hackays and hackathons. But sometimes, focusing on delivering a working prototype will forbid the team to be innovative enough to find and work on the right idea. The demo is not the ultimate objective, and a good idea can always be developed after the event.
