please, tech people. PLEASE. if you dont have a background working in healthcare/medicine, stop the hackathons and just give money.

the potential to do harm is too high, and designing for medicine is a thing. health communication/tooling is a specialty, not a weekend project.


@bleeptrack Fuck Hackathons. It can be a fun way to spend a weekend, but Hackathons as a social institution are terrible.

@bleeptrack THISSSSSSS

Honestly I've competed in dozens of hackathons, nothing useful has come out of a single one. Applying this to anything humanitarian is disastrous.
