Join the DuckDuckGo team to build new “instant answers” this Saturday.
(DuckDuckGo’s Zac Pappis built this Wu-Tang cheat sheet last week. (Editor’s note: Having to click “Show More” to see Ghostface Killah is a travesty.))
The “Quack & Hack” will be from 12-3 p.m. at Benjamin’s Desk.
This isn’t a hackathon, Pappis said, because it’s not a competition. You’ll be working to add features to an open source project that millions of people use every day. The Paoli-based company hit 10 million users a day last month.
Best birthday present ever, softening the blow that I'm now 36. Thank you to everyone who has helped us get here. https://t.co/Z7I2DjZaix

This could also be a cool opportunity to do social justice-style hacking by adding cheat sheets and instant answers that relate to topics you care about and feel are not part of the mainstream narrative — the way that Bryn Mawr College and others have done Wikipedia edit-a-thons to create entries on women’s history.
