For my hack I wanted to explore the New York Times (NYT) Wedding Announcements (http://www.nytimes.com/pages/fashion/weddings/) and do some corresponding data visualizations. The NYT's wedding announcements are a strange cultural phenomena and are often very elitist and downright strange (seriously, go read one of them). I used modern data mining/AI/NLP techniques to extract a lot of interesting information from this data source and constructed some (awesome) visualizations using D3. Go check out (http://nytimes-thesis.herokuapp.com/) for more information and please ignore any typos in the content. The only sleep i got was when i was waiting for NLP jobs to finish running :'(
