Using WriteLaTeX in our Evolutionary Game Theory Hackathon and beyond
By John Hammersley

Jake, David and Artem's recent paper on 'Edge effects in game theoretic dynamics of spatially structured tumours' came about after an impromptu 4-day hackathon. It was also the first time they'd used writeLaTeX for collaboration, and to get their perspective on the experience we asked them some follow up questions. Here's what they said...
