Hackathon Accidentally Picks Perfect Metaphor for Its Own Awfulness

Startup Land only says something poignant about itself by accident, and this time is no exception:

The grand prize in an upcoming venture capital sponsored hackathon is a chance to degrade yourself in a booth full of money.

Literally, startup people waving their arms as quickly as possible in an attempt to grab free money out of the air. What other realities of the tech sector could be streamlined and replicated via tone-deaf novelty romp? Perhaps a pseudo-meritocracy game of red rover, where just the white boys from Stanford are called over?

Previously, previously, previously, previously, previously, previously, previously.

    Last two "previously" don't work, looks like you need to move the "snap/" from the last URL to the URL of the previous one.

    They should at least make it a cool geodesic dome. Have they learned nothing from the Crystal Maze?
