  • Usefulness
    Is the hack something some people would actually use? Does it fulfill a real need some people have?
  • Technical Difficulty
    Is the hack technically interesting or difficult? Were there real technical challenges to surmount?
  • Completeness
    Is the hack working? Does it have some kind of prototype/design?
