We’re headed to Durango, Colorado for most of next week for three days of hackathons, coffee and donut buying, and random acts of kindness. We can not tell you how happy this makes us. Durango is one of those little mountain towns that fills you with hope for humanity. The people are friendly and the restaurants are amazing. It has to be an awesome place because getting there is fraught with peril.

This year we produced and shared over 200 videos across multiple platforms. Some were 6-second scare videos shared in typical Vine format, while others involved hours of shooting, editing, and the indefatigable acting talent of anyone who works here. It would take you a while to get through all of them, so we’ve asked the Name.com staff to pick their favorites.

What is Hack the Dot?
We get that question a lot: What is this thing? It’s hard to answer. At its root, Hack the Dot is an organically successful people pleaser that generates amazing ideas while bringing out the best in people. Logistically, it’s quite simple:
