Allen raises his left fist. "You see this fist?", Allen remarks with conviction. "He has a brother." Allen then raises his right arm, but soon realised he didn't have a free hand to point to both his fists. Without the ability to point to his intimidating punching instruments of death, he feared the impact of his message would be somewhat diminished. "I really need someone to point to my fists", Allen quietly utters to himself.
Brendan, standing next to him heard Allen's mumble and like a true showman, pointed to Allen's pumping fists with gusto. Jazz hands were even involved at one point during the pointing affair.
The motto of this rather confusing and pointless story is "team work". Just like Symphony's first ever Hackathon event, when great minds are squashed together in close cyberspace, special things happen. But don't take my word for it. Listen for yourself.
Over the next hour, you will laugh and you will cry but mostly, you'll be confused by my narration as I attempt to string the different Hackathon segments together into a cohesive story.
For the podcast, I've spoken to several very important Symphony members, so you owe it to them to listen to what they have to say.

Quick, Brendan, point at my fists!
