  • Technology: How technically impressive was the hack? Was the technical problem the team tackled difficult? Did it use a particularly clever technique, or did it use many different components? Did the technology involved make you go “Wow”? Did teams successfully leveraging new technologies as a material component of their solution should be given preference.
