One of the codes of conduct we follow in the hackathon is called: “Less is more.” This is another way of saying “worse is better”. The worse is better philosophy is especially needed in the East Asian context because people care a lot about face. People don’t really want to throw something that ugly that’s incomplete or that’s shameful or something like that. In g0v we started saying “worse is better”. you don’t think about your face and we demonstrate this as the “zero” (slide 26) in the word hackathon.
