<ul><li>Hackers? </li></ul>

Karl Koch  a.k.a.  Hagbard Celine
<ul><li>The “real” hackers had a dream. </li></ul>
<ul><li>“ Wissen muss für jeden Menschen gleich zugänglich sein!“  </li></ul>
<ul><li>“ Information is free and needs to be accessible for everyone.“  </li></ul>
<ul><li>The good news is that we are well on the way. </li></ul>
<ul><li>The other good news is that we don’t need to resort to illegal activity. </li></ul>
<ul><li>More and more companies realize that offering information for the world to re-mix is a great idea. </li></ul>
<ul><li>This starts with RSS feeds to subscribe to without having to visit web sites. </li></ul>
<ul><li>… and it ends with full fledged Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). </li></ul>
<ul><li>APIs allow access to systems and retrieve information in the desired format. </li></ul>
<ul><li>http://www.programmableweb.com   </li></ul>
<ul><li>What we do with this information is up to us.  </li></ul>
<ul><li>Hacking with it is one idea. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Hacking in this case: </li></ul><ul><li>You make a system do what it doesn’t do out of the box. </li></ul><ul><li>...
 
<ul><li>You can achieve that in different ways. </li></ul>
<ul><li>By mixing one system with another (a Mashup). </li></ul>
<ul><li>By accessing or displaying information in a different fashion.  </li></ul>
<ul><li>Interesting Platforms: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Maps </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Messenger </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>...
<ul><li>Above all hacking should be about having fun and achieving something you always wanted to try. </li></ul>
<ul><li>This is what Hack Day is inside Yahoo! </li></ul>
<ul><li>We want our developers to challenge our products and make them better for users. </li></ul>
<ul><li>We also want our developers to challenge themselves to try something new. </li></ul>
<ul><li>And we want to challenge the business people to see what is possible when you let developers play. </li></ul>
<ul><li>…  and now we offer the same possibility to you. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Feel the developer’s itch. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Use APIs, systems, SDKs and ideas and do something that helps you and isn’t available yet. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Past hacks that rocked: </li></ul><ul><li>Search everything (photos, videos, web) from inside your messenger. </li...
