A Tale of Two Hackathons

Having graduated from a provincial university rather than an institute in the capital city, I saw and experienced first hand the difficulty of farming. Ironically, given the vast agricultural challenges and opportunities of the country, many if not most of my countrymen would rather work eight or more hours in the office than to get their hands dirty to produce food on the table, while the Filipino farmers who toil the land for more than those office hours get little to nothing for their effort; Pareto may be in hell for this.
