OpenHackLondon 2009

Yahoo hack day, well what a weekend, started off in a team, got on the train down to London after and Epic Strip the Riley, followed by a Curry.

Whilst napping my team deserted me…. Not nice.

Got to London, tube, stole some wifi from the Radiisson Hotel.

Went into hackday, set up my machines:

Watched some bands,

Ended up that me, phoenixrising, and Cauis built the twitter search API, but using YQL, so we didnt present it, but did/will be extending it to search other sites…

    It certainly was a great weekend! I think taking a wireless router next year is a must.

    I think we pioneered the distributed Mexican wave coordinated via IRC 🙂

      Hehe I forgot about our mexican wave, I was surprised at the lack of people who joined us in the IRC channel, too focussed on hacking perhaps?
