A while back we covered the buildup to (and dustup over) the “Hacking Seattle News” event organized by KING-5. The goal of the weekend coding marathon in October was to come up with new ways of distributing and consuming local news.

KING’s news teams put together a behind-the-scenes piece documenting the event from start to finish, and it aired this week. It’s an interesting look at the creative process, with lots of recognizable faces and familiar characters from the Seattle tech community.

You can watch the whole thing above, and see this post for the slides from the winning presentation.

GeekWire is a media partner of KING-5. Thanks to Isaac Alexander for pointing the video out.
