This jam is now over. It ran from 2016-06-17 23:00:00 to 2016-06-26 23:00:00. View 84 entries

Bring Out Your Dead is an event for sharing dead WIPs and experiments that you don't expect to finish, but that you'd like to show to someone anyway. It's a chance to cleanse your hard drive, move on from old ideas, and salvage some learning from things that didn't work out. It's also an opportunity for your community to learn from your mistakes — which can be just as useful as learning from a success. Ambitious follies, bizarre experiments, toys, and notions that in retrospect never had a chance — all are welcome.

You are also welcome, and indeed encouraged, to provide some context about your work. What were you trying to achieve? What do you think is most or least successful about what you did? Why did you ultimately decide to abandon the project? Are there things you think others could learn from the project?

There is no ranking in this jam: it's not about competition and judgments. However, discussion is welcome, especially if you find something in someone's entry that sparks your imagination.
