Co-hosted by the MIT Global Poverty Initiative and Harvard Developers for Development at the Microsoft NERD center, ID Hack brought together hackers and NGOs from the greater Boston area to work on projects that will make an impact on international development. At the kickoff on Friday evening, over thirty groups pitched ideas to developers, engineers and innovators. After, the entire group mixed to form teams to hack on specific projects.

“Husband to hot wife, father of five, comedian, actor, writer, [and] former sleeper” Jim Gaffigan performed last Friday night in front of a packed Kresge Auditorium. His jokes spanned a wide range of topics, often food-related. The show was sponsored by the SHASS Department’s de Florez Fund for Humor, and tickets were given to MIT students, faculty, and staff via a lottery.
