Hats off (again) to the hackers. No, not the ones who take down music biz websites – the ones who chug pizza and Lucozade round the clock to come up with innovative new music sites and apps at the Hack Day events. This weekend saw New York play host to the phenomenon, and participants came up with 72 hacks during the 48-hour event. Indie Music Tech has a full list with links. Some that stood out for us: Callaboroake is collaborative karaoke where friends sing different parts of a song over their phones; djtxt is crowdsourced party playlists via SMS; Wandermote Jukebox is a jukebox mashing up Echo Nest data and Vevo videos; and TweetsOnBeats is – and we quote – “Peepz Tweetin All Ova Ya Beatz. Fo Shizzle.”
