Headline Guessing Game Wins Hacker-Journalist Contest


Julian Burgess took home the top prize at CUNY Journalism’s News+Gaming Hackathon over the weekend for the game Whose Headline, which lets users guess whether headlines come from publications like the New York Times, the Daily News, The Onion, or others. Judges were clearly willing to look past some egregious oversights, like not including the puntastic scribes at the New York Post or even Daily Intel, although we concede that it isn’t much of a challenge to guess who is responsible for “Man Denies Owning Bag of Crack Found in Own Butt.” [Hacks Hackers via Jennifer 8.
