Initially we announced a Google Hangout with Judges and Sponsors. In order to increase availability and participation, we are encouraging Hackathon attendees to engage with each other and hackathon organizers on Reddit. Our judges, sponsors and organizers will be reviewing the Reddit page. Other conversations that attendees have started (such as finding a team and vetting an idea) are encouraged in the Reddit conversation. You can find the link here: Reddit Conversation.
