Project: Crate

Filename: 20131001_Axel_Quack_Projects_Crate.pdf

Project: Hard Hack

Filename: 20131001_Axel_Quack_Projects_Hard_Hack.pdf
Description: What is a hard hack? Broadly speaking, hard hacks alter „nonliving systems.“ For instance, using instant messaging in a meeting to communicate work-related insights while a particulary boring speaker drones on is a hard hack. A couple of months ago I organized the first hard hack meetup. Employees met once a week at a private meetup called Campfire where they could tinker and experiment with or „hack“ their own projects. As it was a private even we cut the discussion short if the topic drifted toward the company ́s interest or profile.
