Hack your way to a new future

If you're into pigs and hackathons then next week's 32-hour AgriVision data and technology blast is tailor-made for you.

On the other hand, if neither subject immediately grabs your attention, why not treat the AgriVision hackathon as a chance to view the process without having to commit any emotion to the result?

I've been googling phrases like 'which successful start-ups grew out of a hackathon' and there are some appealing examples out there. Plenty of dross as well, of course, in 'my not so humble opinion'.

While next week's hackathon is officially billed as a 'pressure cooker event' to develop data and software driven innovations, it looks more like a chance to free-wheel for a couple of days in the company of some equally crazy techno geeks. Sounds good to me.

By the way, some of my best friends are pig farmers. I was even one myself, briefly and many years ago.
