We ran our first Discovery Jam

Frustrated by hackathon projects that are fun to build but useless in the real world, a group came together one Wednesday evening at Newspeak House to change that.

We dug into real world problems. Small teams quickly collected their findings in the Jams below. And what they discovered was shared with the hackathon teams the following weekend.

The Jams

Did it work?

The Jam had the effect we wanted.

At the hackathon the following weekend teams built solutions that solved real problems identified at the Jam.

One team hacked together an AI-driven merchandise generator for local media. Two others dealt with the credibility of information.

What next?

We'll run another Jam before the end of 2023.
