Stupid Projects From The Stupid Hackathon

Letzte Woche fand in San Francisco der Stupid Hackathon statt und die Projekte dort sind voller Gold. Von Kim Kardashian On A Newton über Essens-Bissen-Tweetbots bis zu einem menschlichen Telepresence-Robot ist alles dabei.

This weekend, Amelia Winger-Bearskin and I organized our second Stupid Shit No One Needs & Terrible Ideas Hackathon, a hackathon that asks participants to produce project that have no value whatsoever (PATENT PENDING). It was a resounding and unqualified success. Here is a small sample of the 100,000+ projects that people made over the course of the day.

Mein Favorites sind wohl der Intellectual Babes Calendar mit hübschgeshoppten Superdenkern und Profanity65: „profanity.json includes a list of swears which map to valid PGP characters, a-z, A-Z, 0-9, +, /, and =“.

Using OpenPGP.js, messages are encrypted or signed using the same globally-trusted GPG client. Then Profanity65 replaces the message's characters with a much more profane system:
