Hack Week Badge

Welcome to the first annual Verge Hack 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. Learn more.

We hacked. We built. We got a little crazy. (Maybe a little too crazy? No. Just the right amount.) Welcome back to the Weekender, where we take a moment to reflect on all the trouble we've caused and glory we've achieved. A lot of strange things happened this week, but the good thing about being here is that stranger times are always ahead. Below, as always, is a collection of some of the week's best work, along with things to do just in case you don't intend on staying in bed all day. Long live Hack Week.
