HackJersey, Graveyard shift

Update from Debbie Galant, co-founder of HackJersey:

Here’s what it looked like in Schmitt Hall Saturday night, as the hours for Hack Jersey developers and journalists began to dwindle. Hack Jersey, sponsored by the NJ News Commons in the School of Communication and Media at Montclair State University and Knight-Mozilla Open News, is a 24-hour contest to develop the best journalism-related app over a weekend. The deadline to turn projects in is noon today. Presentations will start at 1:15 p.m. in University Hall at Montclair State today and are open to the public. They will also be livestreamed on the the Hack Jersey blog. Either way, live or via the internet, everybody can vote for the People’s Choice.
