Is the hack usable in its current state? Is the user experience smooth? Does everything appear to work? Is it well designed?
Is it a unique idea? Has it been done before? Does it do something novel, or at least take a new approach to an old problem?
Is the hack practical? Is it something people would actually use? Does it fulfill a real need people have?
