Art Hack Day event today at Bushwick's 319 Scholes comes heralded with utopian technocratic newspeak:

Art Hack Day is an internet-based nonprofit dedicated to hackers whose medium is art and artists whose medium is tech. We bridge the gap between art, technology and entrepreneurship with grassroots hackathons that demonstrate the expressive potential of new technology and the power of radical collaboration in art. We believe in non-utilitarian beauty through technology and its ability to affect social change for public good.

Fine, but let's also consider:
(i) art putting tech in its place
(ii) indifference to startups and their incredible journeys
(iii) skepticism about allegiance to vague notions of "public good."
