Official Statement from TechCrunch on Prize Ticket Scarcity

Betabeat learned that TechCrunch has had to–er–adjust expectations for rewarding hackers who participate in the Disrupt Hackathon this weekend. Originally, the company said each team that made it to the end of the 24-hour hackathon and presented a workable hack would get two tickets to the conference. But due to overwhelming demand and TechCrunch’s decision to let everybody in, there will almost certainly be too many teams presenting to give each team two tickets.

“Each presenting team will get one comp ticket to the conference,” TechCrunch’s Heather Harde told Betabeat in an email. “Others will be offered discounted tickets.  Winning teams will get full participation to conference.  Depending on final number of hacks to be presented, if we can distribute more, we will.”
