I'd like to welcome you all to the first annual Verge Hack Week. Please do not adjust your display.
This week we're totally blowing up our site: we've given our reporters and editors the entire week to play with new tools and experiment with new storytelling ideas, while members of our amazing product team have gathered in New York to help build all sorts of interesting new things. We've also invited people from across Vox Media to write us editorials about the future — look for pieces from Vox.com editor-in-chief Ezra Klein, Eater editor-in-chief Amanda Kludt, Racked national editor Leslie Price, senior product manager (and former Editorially CEO) Mandy Brown, Vox Media editorial director Lockhart Steele, and many, many others. It's going to be crazy.
It's so crazy we need your help
Of course, The Verge is nothing without its readers, so all of you have responsibilities as well. We need tons of feedback on these experiments: how they're working, what you like, what you don't like, what you'd like to see. We also need your help explaining to people what the hell is going on during this week of insanity — we'll obviously label everything, but things are going to be a little nuts around here.
And if everything works out right, we'll have some very exciting news this week that will take our entire site into the future, so just keep everything pointed right here.
Take a deep breath. Now party as hard as you can.
