When you’re a hacker waiting to take the Disrupt Hackathon stage, you’re probably just making sure that your project actually works. One gentleman decided to scrap his project completely and use his sixty seconds to discuss his political views, attacking large corporations for using your data to make money.


The crowd was a bit surprised as he read a prepared statement from his iPad, but listened to what he had to say nonetheless.


“Do we really need a new way to share our shit?” he started his talk with, and it got people’s attention:



He urged the attendees to stand up against sharing all of their data, opting to sell their content for a price they set.


After the Hackathon resumed its normal tech show-and-tell, I met Todd Bonnewell, and we discussed what had just transpired, and I got to find out about the actual hack he scrapped to share his message.



There you have it, even a hackathon can get hacked.
