> Hackathons in and of themselves do generally have structure. But what I’m referring to here is a structure that integrates innovation into your day-to-day, versus one day a year. If you’re going to infuse a culture of innovation throughout your organization, you’ll need to keep at it. Otherwise, it’s like going all out at the gym once a year in pursuit of physical fitness. You won’t see nearly the same results you would if you make it a consistent, regular habit.

Perfectly sums up how I feel about hackathons. I'd rather have a little time every week to work on whatever I want rather than binge once a year.
