GATech Hackathon 2010
We just finished our first ever Camp Hackathon at Georgia Tech. I think this is the most people I’ve ever seen stay up for the whole 24 hours. Our very own Justin Mitchell pulled the all-nighter, and then continued on until 3am the next morning! I haven’t heard from him, I hope he’s still alive…
Here is the answer to “who stayed up all night?”

Social Juke Box is an application that lets you browse through music suggested by your friends to you. In the author’s opinion, this is what Apple Ping should have been.
