Hackathons and rocking the boat
I'm glad to see more people pushing for new ways of doing things. This is just like the movement to DevOps, flatten the hierarchy, remove the politics and processes that kill any chance of momentum. This has never been more true than now with the speed that cloud has added to the way we do things. Sure the executive leadership teams were good at building up companies, but as we all know, these old ways of doing things are just not effective when it comes to driving innovation.
Not sure about the rap music thing, if you ask me, the IT industry is powered by electro.
