It’s Everybody’s Birthday At The Disrupt NY Hackathon

As I write this, it’s about 1am on a Saturday night in New York City, yet TechCrunch’s Disrupt NY hackathon is still humming along. Ryan Lawler and I spent the past hour wandering around, interviewing several sleepy-but-friendly participants.

Fair warning: Although a hackathon doesn’t seem like an obvious venue for this sort of thing, the video does end with a brief flash of violence. That’s because some madman brought a box of Nerf weapons to the venue. Naturally, after Ryan insulted my honor (or was it the other way around?), I had to challenge him to a duel.

We also participated in a couple of impromptu birthday celebrations. After all, why wouldn’t you want to spend the most important day of your year with TechCrunch?
