Hi, I’m Justin Varilek, I’m 27 from Iowa in the US, and I HackPack to help you tell the stories that matter.
Ever since watching Jon Stewart, hearing how he rails against the media for failing to cover the news, I’ve been angry with the information that we receive. I’ve worked as a journalist, and my friends are all journalists, and I live with journalists, so I’ve seen what causes this dilemma. And really, it’s the fact that there are not enough resources on the ground.
Media outlets are trying to cover the nuances of, say, the Syria war, from New York. It’s just not possible. So I started creating HackPack to help local journalists on the ground, experts in what’s actually going on and media outlets around the world. This way, journalists can find jobs, media outlets can really tell what’s going on, and you, the public, receive information about what really matters.
I’m Justin Varilek, CEO and Founder of HackPack, and I HackPack so that you can tell the stories that matter.
