Facebook has reportedly scheduled an all-nighter hackathon for Thursday (tomorrow) at its Menlo Park headquarters. It will end with Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg ringing the Nasdaq bell remotely to signal the company has gone public.
The social networking has set up an internal Facebook Event page for the big day that supposedly already has over 1,000 saying they are going. "We want to get everyone together and remind ourselves that this company is about building things," a source told TechCrunch.
This hackathon will probably result in some new product ideas and features, unlike the last one we heard about: Facebook engineers + paint + beer = giant QR code on roof (video). After all, it's the last one Facebook will have as a private company. In the next few weeks, we'll probably hear about what Facebook engineers came up with. I admit; I'm excited.
