I’ve signed up for Mashed—the event formerly known as Hack Day—in June. Unlike last year, I actually have a clue what to expect, so I’ll be prepared.

Hack Day last year was sponsored by Yahoo and BBC Backstage. This year, BBC Backstage are going it alone. Well, they have a little help from Microsoft. I’m sure that the absence of Yahoo is completely unrelated to Microsoft’s involvement.

So, anyway, I need to come up with something to do. Preferably something fun, cool, and subversive.
